China Practice

McLaughlin & Stern's China Practice has experienced rapid growth over the past years. The practice has been enhanced both at the Partner and Associate levels, by those of our attorneys who are fluent in Mandarin Chinese. The Firm has advised clients on becoming publicly traded in the United States, important litigation involving China based businesses, cross border licensing, and both inbound and outbound financial and real estate transactions. By drawing on the services of various McLaughlin & Stern's practice groups, we are able to fully support Chinese companies in establishing U.S. operations, from their inception to their entry into U.S. markets, and beyond.

Our services include:

  • Litigation including class actions
  • Initial and follow-on public offerings registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Alternative public offerings (SPACs and reverse mergers)
  • Going private transactions
  • Complex commercial and cross-border transactions
  • PIPEs and other private equity and debt financing
  • Due diligence and investigative services
  • Labor and employment issues
  • Joint Ventures
  • Cross-border tax structuring
  • Cross-border Licensing
  • General corporate and ongoing public company representation
  • Intellectual properties
  • Stock exchange listings
  • Business immigration


Several of our Chinese clients are proceeding with expansion plans in the United States both in terms of expanding operating businesses and acquiring investment assets including real estate.

Much of the Firm's expansion has been the result of networking with important Chinese contacts, including those based in the United States and in China. Firm members have taken frequent trips to China and host dignitaries and others who are visiting in the United States from China.
