Our dedication to China's fund industry is unparalleled and unrivaled by any other law firm.

Today, we are counsel to more than 500 private investment fund organizations worldwide, including more than 80 fund managers with their primary operations in China and numerous other managers outside of the PRC making investments in portfolio companies in China. We form considerably more dollar-denominated China venture capital and growth equity funds in dollar terms than any other law firm worldwide. We have a team of more than 40 specialist fund formation lawyers and dozens of other practitioners dedicated to serving our clients headquartered and doing business in China. Multiple members of our team are Mandarin-speaking, Chinese native fund formation specialists who assist our China funds clients and their investors in both USD and RMB fund formation matters. In Asia, Cooley has offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore, and works closely with Cooley’s United States and European offices to serve fund clients worldwide.
