About this office:
IPO PANG P.C. is a premier international law firm first founded in Oakland, California, USA and has been actively assisting clients in the People's Republic of China since the early 1990's. The firm is well-known for its ability to obtain difficult, hard to get licenses, permits, approvals and government support for entry by a foreign enterprise into highly regulated Chinese industries, including pharmaceuticals, gaming, telecommunications, television, information technology, retailing and weaponry. With substantial expertise in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, regulatory submissions (SFDA, AIC, SAFE, MIIT, MOC), equity and cooperative joint ventures, intellectual property, corporate law and political lobbying experience with senior provincial and central government figures in China, the firm also is known as one of the oldest joint venture law firms. The firm is known as one of the top international boutique firms with operations in China and comprises of highly experienced partners and associates, possesses highly specialized skills and is a master of highly proprietary legal know-how.
The firm functions through a number of partners and specialists, almost all bilingual, and operates together as an international team that provides the personalized service clients demand to shepherd through the complex legal maze. As a member of the International Business Law Consortium, the firm further extends its international network to include a team of highly selective, experienced and reputable attorneys who can assist and execute in nearly every country of the world. As each case is personally handled by a shareholder of the firm, we take pride in this method of client service as it enables each partner to take individual responsibility for delivering outstanding quality and value for each assignment.
IPO PANG was founded with a single mission in mind: help guide corporate entrepreneurs to succeed in business in the People's Republic of China. With a population of over 1.3 billion eager consumers, China is one of the last economic frontiers and a foreign direct investment in China has proven to be exceedingly profitable to some and a financial nightmare to others that don't know how to meander through the Chinese legal and business landscape. Our long goal is to help our clients solve problems and recognize opportunities, thereby creating a lasting business model and a sound legal foundation with which to tackle the many faces of business. We do so successfully because we understand the needs of both the Western and Chinese cultures, as well as the myriad of legal and regulatory requirements in China. Our primary expertise is helping companies grow and expand their businesses in China. Our contacts, connections and know-how in China and the international arena bring results, action and saves money.
IPO PANG's primary law practice is assisting multinational companies with complex, difficult and high profile legal and business cases in China. Our client profile typically includes US, Canadian, UK, Australian and other European enterprises with sales upwards of US$50 million, either interested in joint venture or direct investments by contributing cash, technology or know how, or have difficult and complex legal issues in China that need immediate and aggressive resolution. IPO PANG provides essentially "door-to-door" legal and business advice and services from corporate formation to repatriation of profit and an eventual exit strategy for investors.
Headquartered in Shanghai, the economic capital of China, with execution infrastructure in most major cities in China (Guangzhou - Southern Region, Beijing/Tianjin - Northern Region, Chengdu - the new West and Chongqing - the Middle China), IPO PANG maximizes its productivity through a staff of experienced attorneys and legal assistants, and a network of high level government connections. In doing so, IPO PANG focuses on resolving issues and leveraging opportunities for our clients, and we do so quickly, economically and legally in China. Our law practice is exclusively limited to our areas of strength and expertise: Mergers and Acquisitions, Legal Due Diligence, Intellectual Property Law and Protection, Dispute Resolution (Mediation, Arbitration) and Political Lobbying at the Provincial and Central Government level.
In China and on the ground for almost a quarter century, IPO PANG is fully experienced to help its clients to leverage their strengths and protect their interest in the world's most dynamic market. Our reputation within the legal community - both domestically and internationally - is well known. Led by prominent attorney, Mr. Peter C. Pang, the firm's unique approach to legal representation is knowing how to leverage the law in favor of our clients' interests and how to build bridges between different cultures, both with the same economic goals but yet may have a totally different approach to the same issues. Prior to founding of IPO PANG, Mr. Pang was formerly corporate general counsel for such multi-national corporations as Shell Oil Company, Hershey Foods, Dole Food Company and Nissan North America. Educated in both China/Hong Kong and the United States, Mr. Pang has been in practice for over 30 years in Asia and the US and is considered the leading expert on doing business in China under the WTO guidelines.
At IPO PANG, we help create the foundation upon which parties can establish a successful business relationship and enterprises can enjoy the solid footing of a well- honed legal strategy that minimizes legal problems and maximizes legal advantages, resulting in a two prong approach to tackling China business that bring lasting value. IPO PANG is pleased to be a member of the IBLC and looks forward to sharing our expertise and friendship with all our colleagues.
