Investments in Asia
The firm can assist clients throughout Asia through its offices in China (Beijing and Shanghai) and India.
Each of the UGGC partners practising in China has acquired between 10 and 15 years’ local experience. The five partners oversee and coordinate the activities of 20 Asian and European associates. The firm is able to operate directly throughout China from the country’s three largest metropoleis (Beijing and Shanghai). An “Asia Desk” in Paris, with perfect knowledge of Chinese legal issues, completes this geographic coverage. The UGGC team is one of the three largest teams of French lawyers working in China.
On a structural level, UGGC Law Firm has established a privileged, increasingly integrated partnership with a Chinese business law firm. This arrangement provides specialised resources for the Beijing and Shanghai offices. This “partner” firm has been selected for its excellent reputation in the fields in which it operates, for its competence in certain specific areas and because its teams complement those of UGGC Law Firm.
As Indian regulations do not as yet permit the independent establishment of foreign law firms in the country, UGGC Law Firm has an “India Desk” in Paris, a permanent presence in New Delhi and draws on a network of non-exclusive privileged partners operating in the strategic locations of India’s economic development.
These partners have been selected for their competence, the quality of their lawyers, their rigour and the excellent reputation they have acquired with their European and American clientele. Their lawyers are graduates from top Indian, US and UK universities.
The firm’s broad network across Asia allows them to handle business in the countries where they have offices as well as in other countries in South-East Asia.
The firm has assisted several international groups in etablishing their businesses in Vietnam and Thailand.
