iLaw welcomes leading Chinese law firm to the ICLA alliance

As one of the founding members of the International Commercial Law Alliance (ICLA), iLaw is delighted to announce that IPO Pang Xingpu has joined the global group – adding to its recent expansion in Asia.

Shanghai-based IPO Pang Xingpu has had a strong presence across China since the early 1990s and is a boutique law firm that is well recognised as one of the oldest joint venture practices in the country.

It hopes to employ its highly experienced and highly motivated team to assist fellow ICLA members so that their clients can enter new markets in South East Asia by calling on their local expertise.

The latest partnership builds on the ICLA’s existing presence in Asia following its addition of Siam City Law to the alliance at the end of 2018. This firm has offices in Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia.

Mark Culbert, a Director at iLaw, said: “We are very excited that IPO Pang Xingpu has decided to join the ICLA, as it offers clients access to dedicated legal advice in one of the world’s fastest-growing economies.

“The level of local knowledge that the firm can offer, and its expertise in certain areas, such as joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions, competition law and a number of other crucial areas, will play a key role in building the profile of the ICLA across the globe.

“We look forward to working with Peter Pang and his team on various matters in future.”

ICLA is a strategic group of law firms from around the world, which enables members to access legal expertise in more than 20 jurisdictions.

ICLA law firms are all leaders in their own fields, but share the same goals and values, namely to provide their clients with first-class legal advice and to deliver excellent value.
