Lantai Partners has opened a new office—which is the firm's tenth—in Zhengzhou, Henan province.

The new office is comprised of 16 people, including five partners. It will provide legal services to local government and traditional sectors such as equipment manufacturing. It will also expand business in the information technology, biotech, medical and intelligent manufacturing sectors.

The new office will be led by Cheng Yang, who was a partner at Lantai’s Beijing headquarters and practices compliance, labour law and dispute resolution.

The new office will help the firm expand into the Henanese and Central China legal markets.
