Asia Pacific Desk

From Chile to Asia

The emergence of Asia economy, particularly China, is a great opportunity to Latin American investors to enter an attractive and large market where Chile was the first South American country to establish diplomatic relations and to sign a free trade agreement with China.
Consequently, Cariola has created the Asia Desk in order to assist Chilean investors to enter in the Asian market. Therefore, we consider a key strategic alliance with Dacheng Law Offices (, the largest law firm of Asia. This is the first alliance between law firms from Chile and China. Working together we can provide a combined experience and competence to enter not only into China market, but also as a platform to develop businesses in Asia, because it has offices throughout the Region. We have been building reliable and long-lasting relationships with private and state-owned Chinese companies which provide us the know-how to assist and handle complex matters in several legal areas.
Additionaly, Cariola´s Asia Desk is staffed with specialized lawyers, who besides speaking Mandarin, English and Spanish, have Chinese cultural background and hold master degrees and professional working experience with international law firms of United States, Europe and China as well as significance experience in deals related to China.
