Chinese Law

The only PRC law team in the UK and Europe

© Copyright

Formed in 2012, Zhong Lun London PRC Law Practice is the only PRC law team in the UK and Europe, which can provide full-service under the PRC laws. The range of sectors in which we have acquired specialist knowledge, the depth of our technical expertise, and our language advantage complimented by our understanding of the business, political and social cultures of both the UK and the PRC, set us apart from other law firms.


Backed up by the significant firepower of the multi-disciplinary teams in our 12 offices radiating from all major economic-and-political hubs in Chinese Mainland, we can fully handle our clients’ most complex cases from London. Our clients can meet us regularly in the UK and Europe, speak with us whenever necessary without thinking about the time difference, and rely upon us to navigate their business entry to, operation and expansion in, and exit from the unmissable albeit ever-changing Chinese market. We also work closely with various sizes of law firms based in the UK and other European cities in respect of their clients’ cross-border M&As, commercial contracts, Intelligence Property, and other transactional or regulatory issues.  

We also go further to support our clients, with market-leading legal insight and innovation. No matter how complex or tricky an issue may appear, we can help our clients land in the right position, aligned with their long-term strategic blueprint. Our clients give us credit for offering them first-class advice in a cost-and-time efficient manner.  We’re people you want to work with, generous with our time, and ready to help. So, no matter how dynamic and shifting the PRC regulatory framework is and what the future holds, with us you’ll be one step ahead.
