In April, China’s Jingsh Law Firm announced it’s opening an office in London, the latest of the firm’s pronounced global ambitions. “Jingsh office in London is a significant change in the international configuration of Jingsh,” wrote Echo You, the firm’s chief representative in London, in a letter answering our questions.

Among the previous changes in Jingsh’s “international configuration” were three offices in North America—Toronto, Montreal and New York. So is this new London office the latest milestone in Chinese law firms’ efforts to be global players?
