I wrote this post in April of last year but forgot about it until now while cleaning out our draft posts.
The other day we did a post on how to shut down a China WFOE, entitled, How To Shut Down Your China Operations.
Our China lawyers have been seeing a massive increase in inquiries from American companies looking to close down their operations in China.
Beijing Arbitration Commission (‘BAC’) was founded in 1995 by Beijing Municipal government and later became a financially independent institution.

Not sure why joint ventures seem to go in waves, but our China lawyers have been getting more than usual lately. I suspect it has something to do with increased flexibility on the Chinese side as a reaction to recent fears regarding China’s economy.
Our clients often ask that we put a provision into their manufacturing agreements prohibiting their Chinese manufacturer from making the same product for anyone else.
For the first time in China, draft measures for the administration of personal health data have been introduced by the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC).
