Review

Dispute resolution

Zhong Lun Law Firm has been enjoying the coveted position as one of the strongest and most in-demand litigation firms in China, and its Shanghai office also continues its strong presence in the local disputes market. With strength in domestic and international litigation, the team regularly represents clients to achieve excellent results in practice areas such as commercial and transactions, construction and real estate, intellectual property, international arbitration and government compliance.

Jun Gao, partner of the dispute resolution team, is recognised for his work in compliance and government regulation. Commercial disputes expert Binbin Sun is another name to note in the Shanghai office.

Last year was a busy year for Zhong Lun’s Shanghai disputes team. In commercial and transaction, the team advised COFCO Trading in handling the GA matters and cargo insurance issues resulting from an incident when the loading vessel’s main engine broke down. The matter is complicated as there are many legal issues and cargo operations that need to be resolved, including GA securities and bonds, port operations and cargo transshipment. Also, the firm represented Shanghai Building Materials in a dispute over liquidation and dissolution. The case exemplified how state-owned enterprises in Shanghai deal with the historical legal problem of inconsistent ownership of houses and lands raised in the process of restructuring.[WC(1] 

In construction and real estate, the firm acted for Jiangsu Xinggang Construction Group on a construction contract litigation against Shanghai Jinya Real Estate Development and represented Suzhou Zhongshe Construction Group on a construction contract litigation against Suzhou Chengtou Real Estate Development.

In government and regulatory, the team provide comprehensive compliance legal services for Gopher Asset Management to deal with the regulatory supervision by the China Securities Regulatory Commission after the promulgation and implementation of the Regulations on Strengthening the Supervision of Private Investment Funds (Document No.71). This case is the first regulatory supervision case after the promulgation and implementation of Document No.71.

Important clients include Beijing Benz Automotive, Cinda Financial Leasing, Founder Technology Group, Guangdong Huaxing Bank and Shenzhen Prosunpro Solar Energy.
