Bridge to China

Legal, business and cultural dynamics in The Netherlands are different from those in China. This can be difficult, but at the same time generates a competitive advantage for those who can operate with ease in both countries. Our cross-border China Practice in The Netherlands and China (Shanghai and Beijing) masters both worlds and provides you with the vigor you need for success in both markets. 

From our CMS offices in The Netherlands and China, we are always close to your business and “on the ball” in both time zones. Our extensive experience in advising both Dutch as Chinese clients has empowered us to understand what separates and unites both worlds. This experience and knowledge enables us to stimulate cooperation and communication between – the right – Dutch and Chinese partners. Seamless across physical, cultural and language barriers. If at any moment things do not work out as expected, you can also count on us.
