In addition to the business law services above, our attorneys also help with private matters. These include criminal law, divorce, and inheritance disputes.
They can also help with investment disputes and real estate litigation. Many people invest in projects in China. Do not assume that you cannot access justice in China.
Our attorneys in China have the ability to fight for your rights. Without a law firm, it would probably be impossible. However, with a strong legal team, much is possible.
Divorce In Beijing
Divorce rates have gone up a lot in China. Also, international divorce has become common. This is because Chinese people are moving to places like Australia, New Zealand, and the United States.
Of course, they meet locals and can fall in love and get married. At some point, the Chinese person might move back to China.
So now the couple might have a property in Beijing and New Zealand. Now attorneys must get involved in both New Zealand and Beijing. It gets very complicated.
Attorney client relationship In China
Judges are very serious in China. They take civil disputes and contract disputes very seriously. You need an attorney that is comfortable going to court. Some attorneys find going to court exciting.
Right now it’s hard to start a business in China. That’s why it’s important to get help. You can’t set up a business online. You always need to have permission from the government.
It can take a long time to get all the licences and approvals. The courts are not open to the public. You can go to the building, but you can’t go in and ask questions.
Online Platforms For Law In China
There is a new online platform that allows law firms in China to save time. It helps them file paperwork online. They can register cases and book hearing times online.
Before the platform existed, many lawyers in China had to spend 30% of their time waiting in line at the court. They would have to wait to be allowed to submit paperwork.
The attorneys would also need to wait around to get a hearing time booked. The online platform was organized by the Shanghai courts. The platform can also be used to communicate with the judge.
Cao Zhuping, an attorney for SH Er Li Law Firm said that it’s much easier now to register a case without going to court. This saves a lot of time on transportation and waiting in line.
Cao Zhuping uses the court’s platform to submit his evidence and written arguments.

Cao Hongxing of the SH High People’s Court said that many attorneys have scheduling conflicts. The judge will help the attorneys with their time conflicts.
Law firms can also use the system to research a person’s or companies previous litigation history. The system is encrypted. People without authorization have a hard time getting in. Only attorneys registered can use the system.
