China Desk

Roca Junyent’s China Desk advises Spanish clients looking to establish themselves in China and those active in this country. The China Desk also advises Chinese clients on their investment projects in Spain as well as those already established in this country.

In 2002 Roca Junyent opened an office in Shanghai and thus became the first Spanish law firm to set up camp in China. This followed the integration of Herrero Advocats into this Firm in 2007.

Roca Junyent’s Shanghai office is run by a superbly qualified team of Chinese and Spanish professionals equipped with a deep understanding of the Chinese legal system. This ensures that Roca Junyent is able to maintain the required license to operate in the Chinese legal market, granted by the Chinese Ministry of Justice using stringent, highly selective tests.
