Following the lead of China’s largest law firm, the Beijing-based Jun He Law Offices has opened an office in Silicon Valley.

As first reported by Asia Legal Business last month, Jun He has hired three lawyers from U.S. firms for the new West Coast outpost: IP partners James Zhu and Zhaohui “Zoe” Wang, previously the managing partners of Perkins Coie’s Beijing and Shanghai offices, and Steven Cui, a former IP of counsel in Jones Day’s Beijing office. The firm has nearly 400 lawyers; about 90 are partners.

“[The move] will help us represent U.S. clients doing business in China, as even today, U.S. firms are limited in their ability to do business in China because of local restrictions against foreign attorneys,” Zhu told The Am Law Daily. “So joining a Chinese firm will help us remove those restrictions.”
