Beijing-headquartered Hai Run Law Firm was formed in January 2018 by the merger of two former longstanding law firms, Beijing Hairun Law Firm and Beijing Tianrui Law Firm. The firm now is home to more than 300 lawyers across six offices in China. Its dispute resolution team is active in several practice areas, such as commercial, intellectual property and insolvency.
Notable firm contacts include managing partners Ming Yao and Jinlong Zhou, who specialise in commercial disputes matters.
Last year, the firm advised China Nuclear Investment on a financial loan contract dispute against China Nuclear (Pingtan) Science and Technology Park Investment Partnership Enterprise, Beijing Shunhua Real Estate and Bank of Beijing. This case will be a precedent for other similar cases if the plaintiff wins, given the fact that cases of this kind are rare, despite support found in laws and regulations.
In 2021, the firm welcomed senior partners Huanwei Zhang and Mei Fang. Both joined from Anli Law Firm and specialise in asset management.
The firm has many notable clients in banking, including Agricultural Bank of China, Bank of China, Minsheng Bank, Hua Xia Bank and China CITIC Bank.
