Nigel Rowley, Managing Partner at Mackrell Turner Garrett, is currently leading a business delegation, of lawyers and accountants from around the world, in China.
During his journey, Nigel will be travelling to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, from 19 – 25 July, to meet with business delegates from some of the country’s leading business organisations including the CCCME, the CWTO and SHEC.
As President of the London Chapter of the US China Global Investment & Trade Association (USCGITA), Nigel has made numerous trips to China in the past and this latest one will be a chance to discuss the needs of China’s business community in relation to potential inward investment into the UK.
USCGITA was established as a means to develop investment and commerce between the US, China, Europe, South America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as promoting business partnerships among members in those countries.
There will also be a chance for Mackrell Turner Garrett to promote its wide-array of international legal services to Chinese companies, in particular with the leaders of the China World Trade Centre (CWTO) – a Chinese think tank.
Nigel has extensive experience in cross-border commerce and multi-jurisdictional litigation and is Deputy Chair of Mackrell International – an independent network of more than 90 law firms around the world.
Speaking ahead of his trip to China, Nigel said: “Mackrell Turner Garrett has a lot of experience working with businesses in China and I hope to be able to extend our profile further in the country.
“Our knowledge of the local and global legal services markets makes us ideally placed to help Chinese business with their multi-jurisdictional requirements, which can often be quite complex.
“This trip will also serve as a useful tool to gauge the current requirements of China’s business community in order to guide the direction of future international legal services offered by our expert team at Mackrell Turner Garrett.”
The week-long trip has been organised by two of the country’s largest trade organisations CCCME, which represents over 15,000 Chinese state owned enterprises and SHEC, which represents over 5,000 Chinese state owned enterprises, in hopes of creating greater partnership between the UK and China.
