Focus on China

As the pivotal axis of financial and productive flows shifts from the Atlantic Ocean onto the Pacific Ocean, Asia is increasingly becoming a key international player in the financial and political scenes. Set against the globalisation processes this prompts a  reshaping of the productive, business and financial structures of international trade.

As a reflection of these changes, capital flows from the Western world onto Asia (as well as Asian -particularly Chinese- investment in the West) are on the rise. Indeed, because of its sheer size and huge potential for expansion, China has become the epitome of economic growth in Asia over the last decade.

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 the Firm in 2007.

Roca Junyent's Shanghai office is staffed by a qualified team of Chinese and Spanish professional equipped with an in-depth knowledge of the Chinese legal system. This has enabled the Firm to gain and maintain the requisite license granted by the Chinese Ministry of Justice using highly restrictive, selective criteria.

Roca Junyent’s Shanghai Office provides general business law advice across many areas including: Corporate Law and Foreign Investment, Copyright and IP Law, Tax Law, Real Estate Law, Employment and Environmental Law, Litigation and ADR.

  • Corporate Law and Foreign Investment
    Setting up of corporate structures (companies, WFOEs, JVs or FICEs; M&A, etc.).
    Drafting of contracts and articles of association.
    Planning, negotiation with local partners.
    Restructuring and liquidation processes.
  • Copyrights and IP Law
    Registration and protection of patents, copyrights and trade marks.
    Technology transfers and intellectual property rights.
    Negotiation of licenses.
    Business secrets, data protection, marketing and advertising.
  • Tax Law

  • Real Estate Law

  • Employment and Environmental Law

Also from the Shanghai office, the Firm provides comprehensive legal advice on all relevant aspects related to the investment in and trade with Asian Countries, both emerging, (e.g. India and Vietnam) and developed (e.g. Japan, Korea and Singapore). We rely on a large network of partner local law offices across many jurisdictions, which enables us to serve our clients' interests on the spot.

In addition to the above, Roca Junyent's offices in Spain (with the support of the Shanghai office if necessary) provide a full range of legal services to Chinese businesspeople and investors in Spain, with a full understanding of the Chinese language, legal system, context and business culture.
