China & Southeast Asia

Ms. Giampolo obtained a Certificate of Law in Chinese Law from Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Through her time living in China and the connections she’s made, she can assist your corporation in the due diligence required before entering the 1.3 billion-strong Chinese market as well as the ever-expanding Southeast Asian market.

Tough questions remain when expanding into China & Southeast Asia. Is an equity joint venture, co-operative joint venture or a wholly-foreign-owned enterprise the appropriate investment vehicle? Is a local joint venure partner necessary from a business prospective, and if so, how do you find the appropriate business partner? How do you obtain the all-important business licenses required to even do business in China and SE Asia? If you wish to export goods, what are the procedures? How should a U.S. corporation structure its activities from a U.S. tax prospective?

An example of services that a company entering China and SE Asia will require include:

  • Real Estate
  • Project & Infrastructure Finance
  • Corporate Services
  • Export, Customs and Trade
  • Franchising
  • Labor and Employment
  • Inbound/Outbound Investment
  • Media and Advertising
  • Pro Bono and Not for Profit
  • Product Liability

While entering the Chinese and SE Asian market is always a risk, and GLG can’t guarantee your success in an emerging market, we will work zealously and tirelessly toward that end.
