Why Cathay Associates?

Against the backdrop of China’s Go Abroad Policy, the Belt and Road Initiative and the rapid internationalization of the Renminbi, Chinese enterprises are implementing more aggressive global strategies.  Evidently, China’s outbound direct investment and merger and acquisition activities have risen exponentially in the past decade. They demonstrate increased sophistication in capturing commercial opportunities abroad and exercise good judgment of technologies and industry trends. One of the critical elements in successfully implementing their global strategy is the ability to navigate seamlessly in the local legal and policy environment.

By creating a global legal service network, Cathay Associates aims at providing cross-jurisdictional legal services to Chinese enterprises with ambitious global strategies.
