Firm profile

JunHe, founded in Beijing in 1989, was one of the first private partnership law firms in China. Since its establishment, JunHe has grown to become one of the largest and most recognised Chinese law firms. The firm has 12 offices around the world and a team comprising more than 730 professionals, including over 220 partners and legal counsel, as well as over 510 associates and legal translators.

 

 

Our solid foundation is laid upon delivering premier legal services

JunHe is committed to providing top-tier legal services in commercial transactions and litigation.  Our firm is well known for being a pioneer, an innovator and a leader in the reestablishment and development of the modern legal profession in China.

Just as each industry requires specialised knowledge, our attorneys are arranged into multidisciplinary practice groups so that they are equipped with deep expertise in market-tailored legal fields and industry sectors. To meet the specific requirements of each client and project, we form project teams across different practice groups to combine the lawyers’ strengths with the requisite skills to offer a bespoke legal advice. By consistently providing exceptional representation, we have earned our reputation for excellence.

 

Our network growth is achieved through prudence and independence

JunHe adheres to the goals of independent development and strategic expansion. In addition to our head office in Beijing, the firm operates offices throughout China in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dalian, Haikou, Tianjin, Qingdao and Chengdu. Through our network of offices based in China’s political, economic and financial centres, as well as in the economic zones along the east and the south coasts, we serve our clients across the country.

In tandem with our domestic clients’ investments abroad, the firm has opened fully licensed offices in Hong Kong and New York – two international commercial centres – as well as in the high-tech mecca of Silicon Valley. By doing so, leaders in finance and technology have access to our cutting-edge representation in China and abroad.   

Adhering to the principle of client-centred services, we are a true and genuine partnership law firm, with our domestic and overseas offices placed under common management, and resources pooled and deployed in an integrated manner. 

 

Our relentless power is sourced from attracting talented lawyers worldwide

At JunHe we are keenly aware that our core competitiveness lies in the strength of our collective intelligence. Our attorneys are primarily recruited from the top law schools and law firms in the world and some have in their previous careers served as government officials, judges, accountants, tax analysts and scientists. 

While most of our lawyers are licensed in China, many are qualified to practise law in multiple jurisdictions, such as the US, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Our attorneys are multilingual, with fluency in Chinese as well as English, German, Japanese and several other languages.

In addition to advising clients at JunHe, our lawyers often concurrently hold distinguished posts at international organisations, government agencies, trade associations and arbitration tribunals. They also devote their expertise to contributing to Chinese lawmaking, writing legal publications, organising academic research and seminars, and teaching as guest professors.  

 

Our competitive edge is maintained through constant innovation

From the beginning, our firm has grown by virtue of innovation. At the forefront of great movements, JunHe continues to forge ahead of our peers and continuously innovate – including by advising on unprecedented foreign investment projects during the initial period of China’s Reform and Open Campaign; on major transactions during the State-owned Enterprise Reform in the 1990s; on comprehensive debt and equity operations incorporating onshore and offshore capital markets in the new century; and on the continuous development of novel services and products in the internet era.

JunHe is credited with many “firsts” in the Chinese market. Growing with our clients, we have not only been honoured with high praise, but have also achieved a leading position in the Chinese legal industry.

 

Our global strategy is devoted to collaborating with our peers   

In the context of globalisation, we augment our strengths by collaborating with leading law firms in other jurisdictions. By building such alliances, we overcome cultural differences and knowledge gaps. In turn, our clients benefit from a combination of rich local experience, smooth communications, a full spectrum of practice, global coordination and seamless representation in cross-border transactions.

Due to our outstanding client service and excellent reputation, we are the only Chinese law firm to be accepted for membership in Lex Mundi and Multilaw, two leading associations of independent law firms around the world. We have also established “best friend” relationships with many other preeminent local law firms. Through such alliances, we are able to extend our premier legal services efficiently and consistently to every corner of the globe.
