Within two years of our founding, Lee, Tsai & Partners swiftly rose from a firm with around a dozen employees to one of the top 10 law firms in Taiwan. The Lee Tsai Group, including the affiliated law firm and IP and investment consulting companies, has rapidly grown since then, and in July 2001, we proudly opened our second office in Shanghai to assist multinational companies and Taiwanese companies with their inbound investments in China. Motivated by our steadfast commitment to our clients, in July 2010 we again worked with attorneys in Beijing to build a new legal team in response to our clients’ pressing need for legal expertise pertinent to the increasingly close economic relationship between the PRC and Taiwan.
One of our primary goals is to assist multinational companies in developing their business within the increasingly integrated economy of the Greater China region and to aid local PRC companies in their outbound investments with a specific focus on investing in Taiwan. The seamless exchange of experience, local industry knowledge, and resources among the three teams in Taipei, Shanghai, and Beijing provides our clients with full access to our entire professional team, regardless of location.
