The China and Asia team is led by Laurel (Xueying) Zhang, a lawyer and native Mandarin speaker. We regularly advise companies from China and across South-East Asia and Taiwan on setting up and trading in the UK, and assist with litigation or dispute resolution, including the enforcement of foreign judgments and debt recovery.
