China has introduced the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative which aims to strengthen Chinese presence and connectivity to the world. With the introduction of OBOR, coupled with Malaysia’s strategic geographical location along the route, this provides excellent investment opportunities from Chinese investors in Malaysia.
ZUL RAFIQUE & Partners (ZRp), one of the largest independent law firms in Malaysia with about 90 lawyers, recognises the significance of these developments and has established a China Desk dedicated to support and provide legal services to Chinese clients and corporations.
Our dedicated ZRp China Desk team, drawn from across our various practice groups, are equipped with the necessary cultural knowledge, language skills and legal experience in order to best cater to our clients’ needs.
Our lawyers have advised a wide range of clients from listed companies to private investors in Chinese investment projects, cross-border transactions, international arbitration and legal disputes as well as issues in and out of China.
