After returning back to China in 1997, Hong Kong has maintained a stable and fast economic development for the last decade and continues to be one of the most important global financial and trade centers and is a leading financial and trade centre in Asia. Hong Kong governmental authorities keep efficient working systems with a high transparency, thus attracting many international enterprises to make presences and do business there. In order to meet our clients' needs, we also duly registered a company which is called China Sunbow & Associates Limited in Hong Kong which mainly represent our clients to apply for and prosecute various trademarks, designs and patents with the Hong Kong Intellectual Property Department and handle some other business matters in Hong Kong.

 

Shanghai, a gateway to a land full of all potentials and opportunities, is a critical commercial and financial center and the most open city in China, where it is an ideal place for foreign investment and many Fortune 500 multi-national companies have already established offices here as their China or Asia Pacific headquarters. In order to meet the expanding Chinese legal needs of the multi-national companies, we are headquartered in Shanghai to deal with relevant legal business on our clients?direct investment, merger and acquisitions in China.
