Led by President Thomas So, a six-member delegation of the Law Society visited Chongqing and Chengdu from 21 to 24 June. The delegation met with the Chongqing Lawyers’ Association and the Chengdu Lawyers’ Association and arranged two legal seminars for lawyers in the two cities. The seminars covered topics such as the negotiation process and procedure of overseas mergers and acquisitions, due diligence and managing risks associated with intellectual property transactions, as well as legal risk prevention and control of listing in Hong Kong. The seminars were well received by more than 130 attendees. Both lawyers’ associations have indicated their desire to provide more relevant training courses for local lawyers to enhance their knowledge and skills on Chinese outbound investments.
