Employment & Pensions


For your business to be successful, you must manage your employees and their benefits. Yet from employment law compliance to restructurings, transfer of business issues and restrictive covenants, employment law in China is complex and, at times, contradictory. Our specialists can help you navigate the maze of HR regulations, policy documents and other legal complexities you must contend with on a daily basis.

If your business crosses borders, you will be faced with additional legal hurdles before achieving the outcome you need. With a global network covering 34 countries, we can help solve your problems across all the jurisdictions in which you operate - whether your issue relates to employment contracts, pension schemes, international secondment or executive transfers, redundancies, employment dispute resolution, trade union/staff representative relations or litigation. We also help you keep abreast with the latest legislation and regulation development through in-house management trainings.
