Real Estate Development - China

Our lawyers bring you their expertise in real estate development law in China

China is one of the most amazing economic successes in world history. An economic miracle is being built brick by brick across China, incorporating infrastructure, homes, shopping malls and public buildings. We are proud to have advised on countless construction projects across China – from the developed east to the fast-developing west.  

We advise on the full range of development projects regionally and nationwide in all phases: land development, land use rights, zoning and design, management as well as financing and development. We also advise on environmental issues.

With experience advising on landmark real estate and infrastructure developments in China, we provide commercial and practical solutions to the issues you face. Importantly, we offer specialist insights into the business implications of new industry initiatives and local legislation to help you make informed choices and achieve your goals.

In addition, our lawyers work closely with our dispute resolution team to respond to concerns and negotiate a resolution to any legal issues. This minimises the risk of challenges to your development projects.

Drawing on the resources from our key offices in Beijing and Shanghai and our teams of specialist real estate development lawyers around China, we can efficiently resource any project in China, whatever its location or size.

Our lawyers bring an incredible amount of experience and insight to your business. At every stage of project completion, it is this insight that differentiates King & Wood Mallesons from other top-tier firms and enables us to provide innovative commercial solutions.
