Compliance Services

Compliance and legal risk control are significant to daily business operations. Chinese law and regulations change rapidly and by having a lawyer from HJM assigned to them, our clients are promptly aware of the new laws and regulations affecting their business. As the local authorities are executing more and more strictly laws and regulations for compliance purposes, our clients must comply to avoid paying fines, penalties, blacklisting, business license suspension/revocation, etc.

HJM provide clients with careful, preventive and practical measures to avoid potential compliance issues, disputes and conflicts. HJM lawyers are experienced in compliance services which aim to give clients effective protection with regard to all aspects of their business.
