Seminar Overview

With an eye on the rapid developments in China’s attitude, law and regulations towards foreign investment, SCCA would like to invite its members to attend a full day seminar that addresses the opportunities and issues in investing in China today. The seminar will combine both introductions to the basics of foreign investment in China as well as discussions of best practices, so as to provide a holistic view of the current landscape.

The seminar will be chaired by partners from Dechert’s China practice, and will also feature a panel discussion by in-house counsel who have had previously worked in China to share their personal experiences.
