China’s Jingsh Law Firm has big plans for its upcoming London office. Not only will it be the firm’s hub for the U.K. market and the whole of Europe, but it’s also a milestone in the Chinese firm’s globalization effort.

“The strategic importance of London in Jingsh’s globalization plans is second only to New York,” said firm founder and managing partner Yang Jianhua. The ultimate goal, he added, is to expand the Chinese firm’s global network to cover more than 200 markets in the world’s major countries and regions.
