Loeb & Loeb LLP announced today that the firm’s growing Beijing representative office has relocated to the prominent Yintai Center, in the heart of the city’s Central Business District. The Beijing representative office received approval from the Ministry of Justice in February. Loeb & Loeb’s Beijing office supports the firm’s robust China Practice, serving a rapidly growing number of clients conducting cross-border corporate transactions and business matters between the U.S. and Asia.
“We have had a thriving practice in China for many years,” said Mitch Nussbaum, Partner and Chair of Loeb & Loeb’s China Practice. “Our Beijing office brings an expanded on the ground presence in China, which allows us to better serve our clients by more effectively bridging culture, language and time zone differences, while positioning the firm to capitalize on growth of the country’s economic infrastructure and global investments.”
Loeb & Loeb represents Chinese companies across a myriad of industries who are doing business in the U.S. or seeking financing from the U.S. capital markets, in addition to representing U.S. companies expanding their businesses or looking to invest in China. The firm currently has nearly 30 professionals in its Beijing and New York offices who are focused on servicing clients with business interests in the Asia-Pacific region.
The firm’s China Practice is particularly active in the areas of corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions transactions. Loeb & Loeb’s securities team has helped more than 50 Chinese companies list on U.S. stock exchanges. In 2009, the firm completed 33 major transactions totalling approximately $2.1 billion for Chinese companies and U.S. companies doing business in China.
The attorneys leading Loeb & Loeb’s work in China are supported by a Mandarin-speaking team of associates and legal assistants. The partners resident in our Beijing office include:
