Senior Adviser - Liuming International
Graham is a steering committee member for our Commercial Group 2016.
Graham first went to China in 1984 and became active in China legal issues as early as 1991. Together with Wei Xin, he has written many articles on Chinese legal issues including land law, tax, corporate and IP. He has been a regular speaker in Asia, Australia, Europe and the US on China issues. Graham commuted to China every 6 weeks during 1995 to 1997 and moved to work full time in China in 1997.
Graham has more than 25 years experience as a lawyer and is a contract law specialist, having taught contract law at undergraduate and postgraduate level at Australian and Chinese universities. He has also extensive experience in designing and advising on commercially effective structures for international investment in China and offshore listing of China ventures.
Graham also has had the relatively unique experience of advising Chinese companies in negotiations with foreign parties and has first hand knowledge of how it works on that side of the table. He has advised on the legal structures used in a number of significant investment projects and has developed the documents used to implement many sophisticated contractual and structural arrangements.
Liuming International, the International Business Group of Beijing Liuming Law Firm, is a specialised legal team.
Its leaders have many years of experience in helping its clients to successfully engage with China in investment, IP, sourcing and finance related transactions. Their clients are national and multinational companies from the Asia and Pacific Region, North America and Europe.
Our clients really understand their business and are very often the leader in their field. We work hard to understand their business and their needs and apply our real understanding of the Chinese law and business culture to their project, leaving them free to concentrate on the commercial aspects.
