Services for U.S. Clients Doing Business in China

We provide a broad range of services to serve our U.S. clients who have business dealings in China. We can assist them in all aspects of setting up Chinese operations including: mergers and acquisitions (including Chinese merger contracts); negotiating contracts; facilitating agreements; assisting with any immigration needs; and locating business partners (buyers, sellers, suppliers). In addition, our services include support in tax issues (import/export, duties, etc.), real estate transactions, employment matters, and intellectual property issues (including patents, trademarks, and licensing). We can also provide guidance in dispute management, reviewing all court documents and facilitating arguments, sourcing private investigators to assist in investigations, and, when necessary, finding local counsel in China.

Services for Chinese Clients Doing Business in the U.S.

We offer our Chinese clients guidance on all manner of issues related to doing business in the U.S. For example, we can assist in setting up business operations in the U.S., real estate or land acquisition, drafting and negotiating contracts, purchasing assets or stock of U.S. Companies, financing (either through private offering or IPO), securing licensing agreements, employment issues (contracts, non-competes, union negotiations, training, etc.), immigration, dispute resolution, intellectual property strategy.

Additional Resources

We feel that we can offer our clients unique resources that give them an additional edge in their U.S.-Chinese operations. For example, Ruilin Li, a shareholder with our firm, has practiced law in both China and the U.S., and is fluent in both languages. Brinton Scott has more than 10 years practice experience in China. Their cross-cultural experiences and knowledge of the law in both countries makes them particularly suited to clients with the desire to expand their operations in China or into the United States.

In addition, our firm has a strong relationship with the Minnesota Trade Office, which works actively with the Minnesota state government to secure ties with Chinese businesses.

We work closely with Trade Office personnel on Minnesota’s trade missions to China, traveling with the Governor and his team and presenting seminars for both U.S. and Chinese businesses on expanding operations internationally. Fredrikson & Byron also has a close relationship with the highly-respected University of Minnesota China Center, a leader in Chinese society. Our relationships with these highly regarded organizations provide us with additional resources and contacts for our U.S. and Chinese clients, streamlining entry into a new country and preventing problems before they arise.
