Dentons’ China region consists of 48 offices, spanning all of the nation’s provinces, direct-administered municipalities and autonomous regions. It was formed through the 2015 combination of the global law firm Dentons and the Chinese firm 大成. Partly as a result of that combination, Dentons is now the largest law firm in the world.
Founded in 1992, 大成 was one of the first partnership law firms in China and today is one of the largest. 大成 began implementing its first five-year plan in 2004, and in 2007 the firm launched its strategy of building a global legal services network. Through the rapid expansion that has resulted, 大成 lawyers gained access to global resources, referrals, knowledge and experience – enhancing the delivery of cost-effective, agile and efficient service to clients.
Dentons offers clients the benefit of more than 12,000 experienced lawyers in more than 80 countries and regions, who are in and of the communities where clients want to do business or resolve a dispute. Dentons has offices throughout Canada and the United States, Europe, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Latin America and the Caribbean and Asia. Through broad and in-depth cooperation between the most influential law firms from China and the West, we are innovating the world's legal services sector and marking a milestone in the history of the global legal profession.
