Representatives from businesses across London attended the event, keen to discuss how to make UK-China businesses a success and explore the challenges of doing business in China.

The round-table event gave businesses the opportunity to openly discuss their thoughts and concerns on doing business in China. It was hosted by Haseltine Lake’s Lead Partner for China & Asia, Daniel Chew, and Laurel Zhang, Head of the China & Southeast Asia team at Sherrards – who both have extensive experience in helping UK-China businesses and securing IP protection in China.

Laurel Zhang comments, “Navigating the complexities of China’s legal, regulatory and business environment is not easy and we were delighted to share our insights with attendees from a range of London businesses. We also stressed the need for an awareness of cultural norms which, as we always explain to clients, is just as important for ensuring a successful business relationship.”

Commenting on the evening, Daniel Chew adds, “Being able to make the most out of the opportunities available in the Chinese market, whilst also protecting your business in China, are critical issues for UK businesses today. Some of our clients have experienced issues when operating in China, so we wanted to provide an informal setting to offer our support and for the businesses to openly share and learn from each other’s experiences. The Chinese IP system is improving all the time but remains very different to the UK and European systems, and we hope the evening provided our guests with useful and practical advice and resources to help them make their next moves confidently.”
