A Leading Irish Law Firm
Covering all aspects of business and tax laws, Arthur Cox is Ireland’s largest law firm. The firm advised the Irish government during the recent crisis and with a strong reputation at home and abroad, Arthur Cox is helping to strengthen the Ireland-China partnership while remaining at the forefront of developments in the legal profession in Ireland.
For over 90 years, Arthur Cox has been building relationships and developing specialist industry knowledge to help clients achieve their goals. With offices in Dublin, Belfast, London, New York and Silicon Valley, the firm is well positioned to work closely with international clients.
Inward investment continues to be a priority for Ireland. Nine out of ten global IT companies have a presence in Ireland and half of the world’s global aircraft leasing business is done through the country. While Ireland positions itself as the ‘Passport into Europe’, the country’s business-friendly environment is continuing to attract attention and Arthur Cox is assisting Asian clients investing in Ireland.
“Our dedicated team coordinates our activities across Asia-Pacific and we work closely with independent law firms throughout the region. We act for Irish and international clients seeking to invest and establish operations in the Asia-Pacific region as well as for new and existing clients from the region looking to invest and do business in and through Ireland. We are committed to helping our clients prepare for the opportunities and the challenges of doing business overseas”.
As a highly regarded common law jurisdiction with a modern financial offering and a fair economic and hospitable business environment, Ireland continues to welcome Chinese companies.
“As a firm, we are sensitive to Chinese investors and clients and understand the importance of recognising the Chinese way of doing business,” says Devlin.“Ireland’s Investors Immigration Programme is also receiving a positive response in China”.
By continuously working with firms across China and building strategic relations with key financial firms in Hong Kong, Arthur Cox is building on its reputation across the Asia-Pacific region.
“There is an ease of doing business in Hong Kong which makes for an attractive corporate environment,” concludes Devlin. “Through the work of our Asia-Pacific Group, we intend to remain committed to China and will continually strengthen our open communication with our Chinese partners and clients”.
