Over the years we have expanded our services to international companies and developed an extensive network and long-term relationships with the most important law firms across the globe. We are fully aware of the relevance of the Asian-Pacific and Chinese markets for Chile.
Since 2004, we have been working on increasing our presence in Asia-Pacific, especially in China, by organizing and participating in seminars and conferences on China and establishing contacts with Chinese authorities, chambers of commerce and other social and business organizations. In our client portfolio we are proud to have several Chinese companies, both state-owned and private, engaged in sectors of business such as mining, agroindustry, automotive, industrial and heavy machinery. In order to consolidate our relationship with Asian investors, our firm has created the Asia-Pacific Desk through which we are prepared to conduct all the China- and Asia-Pacific-related transactions handled by our firm and to provide specialized services to our clients.
The Asia-Pacific Desk is staffed with lawyers who are not only fluent in Chinese, English and Spanish, but also have a Chinese background, professional experience and significant involvement in China-related transactions. We believe that this constitutes a great asset that provides significant support to our Asian clients in entering the local market of Chile. Additionally, many of our lawyers hold master degrees from the most important universities of the world, including in China, the United States and Europe, and many have worked in international law firms.
