AllBright Law Offices was founded in 1999 as a full-service law firm committed to providing the highest levels of quality advice to clients.
Based in Shanghai, AllBright has grown, innovated and provided unmatched service throughout a period of continuous economic and political change across China. Our focus on providing excellent advice and support to our clients has led to rapid expansion and we have established branch offices in 21 cities on the Chinese mainland (Hangzhou, Beijing, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Nanjing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Taiyuan, Qingdao, Tianjin, Xiamen, Jinan, Hefei, Zhengzhou, Fuzhou, Nanchang, Xi’an, Guangzhou, Changchun, Wuhan and Urumqi) as well as in Hong Kong, London (UK) and Seattle (USA). In addition, as a result of our increased international presence we have also established an association with the Hong Kong law firm Stevenson, Wong & Co. and a strategic partnership with the Bird & Bird LLP.
AllBright carries on the proud cosmopolitan culture of Shanghai and constantly seeks to bring together established legal professionals and outstanding young talent. In 2018, our team included nearly 2,300 lawyers, which grew to more than 2,800 in 2019, and now stands at over 3,100. This growth is a reflection of the importance we place on driving innovation, creating value for our clients and providing a global service for our clients.
At AllBright, we never stop upgrading and improving our professional legal services, while continuing to optimize our practice area layout. Currently, AllBright has ten major professional committees: Securities and Capital Markets, Banking and Finance, Corporate and M&A, International Trade, Cross-Border Investment, Real Estate and Construction, Intellectual Property, Maritime Affairs，Bankruptcy Liquidation and reorganization, Litigation and Arbitration, Criminal and Tax Law. Each committee continually arranges speakers to address their members, informs members of key global conferences and encourages members to interact with partner firms and companies around the world. In doing so, we aim to achieve the highest levels of professional development within the firm.
The history of Global Law Office (hereinafter the “GLO”) dates back to the establishment of China’s Legal Consultant Office of the Council for the Promotion of International Trade (hereinafter the “CCPIT”) in 1979. After years of persistent endeavours and development, we have become one of the largest and leading Chinese law firms.
We value the principles of simplicity, integrity and positivity. As a client-centered firm, we constantly improve our service and communications qualities, focusing on efficient and creative legal solutions for our clients.
Since its inception, GLO has been and remains committed to the mission of “serving domestic and international clients with a globalized vision, globalized team and globalized quality”. This has allowed us to always maintain a leading position in the industry in the midst of an ever-changing global economic environment.
