NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2013) - M&A deals involving China are on the rise, with approximately 490 of the global Fortune 500 having assets and operations in China, an increasing number of small and medium enterprises from around the world setting up subsidiaries in China, and nearly 450,000 foreign-invested enterprises in China at the end of 2012. To help attorneys familiarize themselves with handling the complex China-related elements of their global M&A deals, Practical Law Company, a provider of practical legal know-how to attorneys, is presenting a complimentary webinar, "Exploring Global M&A Deals With China Elements," on March 7, 2013, at 11:00AM ET (8:00AM PT).
During the 90-minute webinar, Tasha Hutchins, Senior Editor, PLC Corporate & Securities, will lead a discussion with Robert Lewis and John Jiang, Partners with the Zhong Lun Law Firm, addressing practical strategies for managing the key China-related elements of global M&A transactions and prevailing trends in these areas. The presenters will review issues relating to due diligence in China, structuring considerations, China merger control triggers and thresholds, the extra-territorial reach of Chinese capital gains taxes, and non-compliance issues with Chinese operations. The webinar will be followed by a short Q&A session.
"We are excited to be presenting this important program with Zhong Lun Law Firm," said Hutchins. "With China becoming such an integral part of global M&A deals, attorneys should be aware of key aspects of Chinese laws that can affect their deals, as well as the current regulatory environment in China. Zhong Lun is regarded as one of the top law firms in China and our presenters are in a unique position to offer valuable insight into critical issues that attorneys must consider when advising clients that are acquiring, or being acquired by, a company with operations in China."
