HFW in China

The Shanghai office specialises in all aspects of international commercial maritime and admiralty law, corporate, ship sale and purchase, new buildings, ship repair and conversion, insurance, commodities and trade.

The office conducts litigation, arbitration and mediation in several jurisdictions and advises clients trading with and within China. It also advises on joint venture and inward investment projects throughout China. Henry Fung and Patrick Yeung, Partners in our Hong Kong office, also spend much of their time in our Shanghai office, supporting our PRC practice.

In April 2016, following approval by the Shanghai Justice Bureau, the firm entered a formal association, through the Shanghai office, with local law firm Wintell & Co, operating in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone and in Tianjin.

Wintell & Co specialises in particular in shipping, insurance and corporate law and HFW has worked with the firm for many years. Whilst remaining separate entities, HFW's Shanghai office and Wintell will come together to work on mutually beneficial marketing and business development opportunities, taking advantage of the strong client base of each firm and combining HFW's international footprint with Wintell's local Chinese law expertise to provide clients with enhanced on the ground service.

To celebrate the formal launch of HFW's association with Wintell & Co in China, the firms held a joint cocktail reception on Thursday 26 May in Shanghai. The event was attended by more than 100 guests of both firms. HFW's Senior Partner, Richard Crump, and Paul Zhou, the founding partner of Wintell & Co, welcomed the guests. In addition, Henry Chiang of Greathorse Shipping and a representative of the Shanghai Justice Bureau wished the association every success in the future.
