Dispute resolution

Global Law Office’s dispute resolution team comprises 50 partners with nearly 100 associates with solid skills and rich experience in a broad range of practices including antitrust, finance, compliance, insolvency, construction and intellectual property. It is also well-respected in the field of international arbitration, able to instruct in large-scale matters before CIETAC, HKIAC, LCIA and ICC.

Xing Xiusong and Gao Yifeng are well regarded for their international arbitration capability. Gao is also active in construction and product liability disputes. Other lawyers to note include Jingye Jiang, Zhao Li and Jiuguang Zhao.

Case highlights during the past 12 months include advising Zhongrong International Trust on an over Rmb5 billion litigation; advising TC Pharmaceutical Industries on a trademark litigation; and representing Guanghan Chuanhan Steel Pipes, Shanxi Hanzhong Iron & Steel Group, Lveyang Yangjiaba Mining and two guarantors in an equity transfer dispute against Baoye Taifeng Investment Holding in the second-instance proceedings before the Supreme Court.

On the IP side, the firm represented a famous Chinese musician LoudBoy in a controversial music copyright infringement lawsuit in Beijing. The case is expected to be a major breakthrough in music law practice as one of the rare cases that focuses on the copyright issue concerning music and film sound track specifically.

In 2021, the firm welcomed eight new partners, including Guangming Liu and Lei Niu, who joined from JunHe and Zhong Lun Law Firm, respectively. The rest of the new partners are Yuanyuan Qian, Jin Xiang, Philip (Feng) Zhang, Tong Zhang, Lujun Hou and Yongpan Sheng. The firm also promoted five partners and two counsels in the same year.
