1. There is no obvious reason for a foreign law firm to come to China. The challenges start with the law itself. There is “inconsistent application of law by the local bureaus,” said Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP co-chair of Asia Practice and partner Gentry Sayad. “What may be true in Shanghai may not be true in Beijing.” Because of this, lawyers must spend more time looking at how the law has been applied throughout the country. “What clients would think is a simple question always requires more time and investigation,” said Sayad. Even if the laws were consistently applied, the different emphasis on legal precedents poses another problem.Legal precedents do not have the same influence in China as they do in many developed nations. While in their home country a lawyer might be able to reference previous decisions as they advise their clients, they cannot have the same assurance that past decisions will influence future ones in China. Whatever the virtues or vices of Chinese law,...

1. According to the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China and other relevant laws relating to land and its use, Chinese individuals cannot privately own land (although they can own the buildings on land). The Constitution states that land in urban areas is owned by the state, while land in rural and suburban areas is owned by the state or by local collectives. Nevertheless, individuals can acquire rights to use the land for designated maximum periods of time; land may be used for residential purposes for up to seventy years while for industrial purposes the maximum “land use right” is for fifty years, for example. According to the 2007 Property Rights Law, the term of the land used for residential purposes will be automatically renewed on expiry and the term of the land used for industrial purposes will be renewed “pursuant to law” although there is no indication if a further fee will be charged for their extended use. Owners of land use rights can transfer these rights to oth...

1. If a US firm has US attorneys, does a global firm employ international lawyers? What exactly does being an international lawyer mean? The answer is a bit of a grey area. “There are probably as many definitions of an international lawyer as there are international lawyers!” says Sean Doyle, an M&A partner in Skadden’s New York office. The title certainly isn’t limited to those qualified in two (or more) jurisdictions. The roles of lawyers in global firms are more interconnected. Cross-border matters may require US-qualified lawyers to reside in foreign offices, and different jurisdictions and different firms have their own rules for how this process works. Brittany Turner, an associate who is seconded from Skadden’s New York office to its Hong Kong office, tells us: “The firm sponsors you to become a registered foreign lawyer. You’re then able to practice the law of your home jurisdiction, which in the US is whichever state bar to which you are admitted. So now I practice New York la...

Frequently Asked Questions

Are foreign lawyers allowed to practice in China?

In Brazil, much like China, foreign lawyers are limited to practicing international law or the law of their home country. The explosive growth of Chinese law firms over the past decade suggests this strategy worked. As Stern and Li note, China is not alone in restricting the activities of foreign law firms.

How to become a lawyer in China and Mexico?

On the other hand, in China, after a three-year law program at University, one needs at least two years of experience working in the legal field before taking an examination and getting a lawyer’s license to practice law. There are many requirements to practice law in Mexico as well.

How can an American law firm work with a Chinese company?

For instance, an American firm office could handle a Chinese company's legal affairs in America, provide consulting services regarding American or international law, and entrust matters of Chinese law to Chinese law firms on behalf of foreign clients.

Can a foreign-trained lawyer practice in the United States?

It can sometimes be difficult to practice law in the U.S. as a foreign-trained lawyer, but it's not impossible. Each state has different requirements, so how you go about it can depend on where you live and want to work. Potential lawyers must sit for the bar exam in the state where they hope to practice.
