Asia Pacific’s share of global economic output is likely to increase. Growing wealth and urbanization are driving consumption. Mainland China in particular, where we have offices in Beijing and Shanghai, has the largest GDP in Asia, and remains one of the fastest growing markets in the world. Most, if not all, international businesses have some relationship with China. Whatever your level of exposure or ambition, trust us to guide you.
Significant opportunities exist in the largest regional financial centers in Asia Pacific. Wherever you operate, you can also find us. Our teams on the ground in Asia Pacific are accustomed to working with an international mindset. They work with Dentons colleagues around the global to deliver pioneering solutions. Few firms could advise a Chinese state-owned construction enterprise on a toll road project in Jamaica leveraging project finance expertise from its Middle East offices. Or pull together a team for a sensitive compliance issue in India on behalf of a US client with specialist FCPA advise provided from New York, Indian lawyers from Kuwait and construction expertise from Hong Kong. Dentons can. In fact, these scenarios are our business norm.
