Our commitment to supporting clients in China reflects our continued belief that emerging markets such as China offer unparalleled growth opportunities in sectors including automotive, education, healthcare, technology, and consumer products. China's rapid changes in consumer behavior and technological advancements add complexity. Foreign businesses face challenges in navigating shifting regulations, intellectual property concerns, and intense local competition. In recent years the status of the US-China relationship has resulted in increased regulatory complexity. Identifying and accessing feasible opportunities requires a partner with feet on the ground.
