In 1981, Paul, Weiss was one of the first foreign firms to establish an office in Beijing. In 1983, we established a Hong Kong limited liability partnership. Three decades later, its team of multinational, Western-trained, Chinese speaking lawyers are led by a four-partner team who collectively are qualified in various jurisdictions around the world. The Paul, Weiss China practice is staffed principally by lawyers in the firm’s Beijing, Hong Kong and New York offices, with support from its Tokyo and Washington, DC, offices. The Beijing office, one of the first foreign law firms in China, has been a prominent member of Beijing’s legal community since opening in 1981. The Beijing and Hong Kong offices work as an integrated unit, with lawyers splitting time between the two locations. Where necessary, the firm works closely with qualified PRC counsel throughout China.
