The article offers information on the legal market in China. Under rules by the State Council through the Chinese Ministry of Justice, foreign firms from the U.S. and elsewhere are not permitted to practice law in China. Thus the true legal work has to be done by Chinese lawyers in Chinese firms. Topics discussed include trust, top-drawer Chinese lawyers, competition for staff, Chinese lawyers moving from AllBright to MWE China Law Offices, and foreign lawyers practicing in China.
