Under the agreement, the new firm will provide services to clients in both Greece and China in the fields of arbitration, antitrust, banking and finance, labour law, litigation and M&A. Mei Xiangrong, managing partner of Yingke, said at the launch ceremony that the motivation for the new office is Greece and China’s need for each other. ‘China has become a comprehensive strategic partner of Greece, not only assisting the country to overcome its financial crisis and debt problems, but also contributing to the stability of the Eurozone and providing solid support though bilateral and multilateral relationships,’ Mr Mei said. According to a news statement, Yingke intends to open more offices in eastern and southern Europe in the coming years. Source: Asian Legal Business
