International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP is pleased to announce that for the fourth year in a row it was named a 2020 winner of the China Business Law Awards (Chinese version here). The firm is one of only eight international law firms recognized with awards in the Banking & Finance, Dispute Resolution (cross-border) and IP (Trademark) categories.
Dorsey represents some of China’s largest and most active corporations, including top financial institutions – such as banks and insurance companies – and private equity funds, as well as high net-worth individuals and family offices. It has represented companies like PICC Property & Casualty and other insurers in a variety of high-profile and major civil actions, product liability litigations, coverage disputes, and regulatory consultation matters in the US and Canada.
Li Chaotian, deputy general manager of the compliance department at Generali China Asset Management, who has many years of insurance experience, says it is important for law firms to understand federal and state laws. “Dorsey & Whitney is well aware of the rhythm of the US lawsuit and the potential risks,” says Li. “They assisted us and the client to obtain a settlement at an earlier time in a case and saved millions of dollars for us, and this case was finally closed in 2019.”
The China Business Law Awards are published by the China Business Law Journal. The awards are based on nominations and comments received by the China Business Law Journal from China-focused corporate counsel, senior managers and legal professionals around the world, along with an evaluation of the winning firms’ landmark deals, cases and other notable achievements.
