Dispute Resolution

Like other jurisdictions, most litigation cases in China end up at the appellate courts. Many people see Chinese judicial system very different from others, because it is influenced by China’s political system and ideology. We see China as a country that is more willing to learn, take over, absorb, and apply other countries’ legal essence to its judicial reform and practice. In certain areas, China has better mechanisms to balance public interest, harmonize social order and effectively respond to calls from individuals or popular outcry; and its judicial remedies somehow are more available and accessible to the people, whether individuals or corporations. However, we also see the challenges faced by China’s judicial system on its way of judicial reform. How to evolve from its administrative function to independent judicial function without doubt needs more progressive efforts, including legislative activities and deeper structural reform.

We are very experienced in dispute resolutions in Chinese judicial proceedings, whether civil or criminal matters. From case docketing, pleading drafting, evidence collection, evidence exchange, to court appearance and presentation, final closing statement, we are familiar with every detail of court procedure. We help clients prepare and plan proper litigation strategies in handling all kind of legal issues, whether simple or complex. Through thorough legal research, collection and evaluation of evidence, narrowing down key legal issues, careful preparation of court presentation and arguments, we find the balance point needed to reach best result for clients in each single case.

China is a large country. China allows each province to have slight difference in judicial practice in order to meet needs of local culture and tradition. Many provinces and autonomous regions may have its local rules in virtual of specific regulatory matters. The regional difference influences the way of judicial practice and interpretation of law. Although Chinese legal practitioners are recognized to practice law all around China, practically we always work with local attorneys to handle litigation cases whenever local support has become necessary to achieve the best outcome and to protect the best interest of our clients. Our branches throughout China help us to balance the needs from local resources, so the support from local legal experts is always accessible to our clients.
