Broad & Bright is a full-service Chinese law firm providing a broad range of specialized legal services in multiple practice areas for domestic and international clients, with particular expertise and outstanding achievements in cross-border business transactions.

Since our inception in 2004, we have been providing our clients with legal services at top international standard. Our professional training and hands-on experience in cross-border transactions are evident in the creative, yet soundly practical solutions we offer to the various legal issues that can arise for our clients in China. Many of our lawyers were educated at first-class law schools in both China and foreign countries and have substantial work experience from top-notch international law firms. We understand where our clients' concerns lie and what challenges they face in the increasingly competitive Chinese market. The academic and professional backgrounds that many of us gained abroad allow us to explain to our foreign clients the essential differences between legislation they may take for granted at home with that currently in effect within China. Maintaining partnerships with law firms abroad and drawing on the advice of legal specialists within and outside of China, we are confident that the solutions we provide will work for our clients.
