The alliance combines MWE China’s local expertise with Lleytons’ International Private Law specialization.
MWE China, a full-service China-licensed law firm, is trusted counsel for multinational companies from around the globe for all types of China law matters. Over a decade ago, MWE China became one of the first Chinese firms to form an alliance with an international firm, Chicago-based McDermott Will & Emery (McDermott), which has 1,100+ lawyers across its 20 offices throughout the US and Europe. To expand their reach, MWE China and Lleytons, a firm strategically located in the Mediterranean area from where it connects to the rest of Europe, Ibero-america and North Africa, decided to form an alliance to increase their regional abilities to provide legal services to their clients.
MWE China has received multiple awards for excellence client service, including achieving the Band 1 ranking for “Corporate Investigations / Anti-Corruption (PRC Firms)” by Chambers Asia-Pacific in 2018 and 2019; leading law firm in “Regulatory/compliance (PRC Firms)” by The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2019; and won the “Data Protection & Privacy PRC Firm of the year” award by China Business Law Journal.
MWE China brings a clear understanding and expertise of the intricacy of Chinese law and practice, helping clients to navigate the challenges they face. Lleytons, with its experience in local and International Private Law, adds value by advising on specifics of the Spanish and European cross-border dynamic often facing clients, whether in-bound or outbound.
Together, the firms aim to unlock the full potential of the Ibero-american market to the benefit of Chinese clients, while placing Spanish clients on the best path for success in China and worldwide.
