Liza Mark in the China Business Law Journal: Foreign Firms Rush to Hang Shingle in Beijing, Shanghai


A flurry of foreign firms have set up shop in China recently, launching operations in Beijing and Shanghai in response to upticks in business or the need to service clients...

Haynes and Boone, LLP is setting up shop in Shanghai to manage the flow of business from China to the Americas.

Liza Mark, who will serve as administrative partner in the recently announced office, said the firm has received Ministry of Justice approval to establish the representative office and is busy with subsequent bureaucratic registrations.

“We’ll have about five lawyers initially, focusing on PE, cross-border M&A and capital markets,” she told the Journal. “Our firm has a very strong Latin American focus, with a longstanding Mexico office and we have just joined up with the MMA Lawyers of Brazil under a co-operation agreement. There are a lot of opportunities flowing from Asia to the Americas."
