Thomson Reuters announced it has expanded the scope of Practical Law, the leading provider of online know-how to lawyers worldwide, with the launch of a dedicated China service.   Practical Law China is the first legal know-how service of its kind to provide transactional support to lawyers doing business in, or with parties based in, mainland China.

Practical Law China was created to meet the unique needs of lawyers working in one of the world’s largest target markets for global corporations and brands. It enables lawyers at multinational companies that trade with China to understand quickly where and how the practice of Chinese law differs from typical international practice, and to advise with confidence on the most common foreign direct investment deals.

The service brings together the expertise of Practical Law’s trusted team of in-house legal editors, all former practising lawyers at top firms and companies around the world, with insight and guidance from leading international and Chinese law firms, including Beijing-based Zhong Lun Law Firm.
