Our China team in Washington and Beijing has decades of commercial and diplomatic experience, boasting broad and deep relationships across China’s major public and private institutions. We also assist clients in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

James Keith, a former US Consul General in Hong Kong, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for China, and National Security Council China director, leads our work in China and the wider region.

Lihui Zhang heads our Beijing office, with extensive experience representing foreign corporate interests in China and a broad network of contacts throughout China. Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico’s ambassador to China, also advises Chinese clients seeking outbound opportunities. And Mack McLarty has been a businessman with active investments in China for many years.

Our China practice is fully integrated with that of The Scowcroft Group, under General Brent Scowcroft’s leadership.

We enjoy a close and productive partnership with the Chinese Glory/Long An law firm, headquartered in Shanghai, but with reach throughout China’s coastal economy and into the interior.  The firm has a network of contacts that help us connect to local offices of all the key Ministries and Departments in Beijing, ranging from Commerce and Customs to law enforcement and foreign affairs bureaus.
