This lecture will provide an overview of the types of legal structures that are available under PRC Law and especially those available for foreign investors. This lecture will especially interest students looking to better understand the legal framework of setting up legal entities in China. Using concrete examples, Professor Boué will explain the advantages and constraints of each structure. The lecture will also explore specific legal issues relating to the management of foreign direct entities in China (shareholders' control, financing, investment strategy, and shareholders' and managers' liability).

About CLE Credit

Please bring your state attorney ID number so that you can complete the necessary paperwork. Various states, including California and New York, recognize Pennsylvania CLE credits. However, attorneys are responsible for checking with the CLE board in their jurisdiction before attending the CLE seminar whether Pennsylvania CLE credits will count towards their CLE requirements and what their jurisdiction requires them to do to claim out-of-state CLE credits. Please inform us before the seminar if your CLE board requires anything other than a copy of the Pennsylvania CLE credit form and a certificate of attendance.

Persons who are interested in the topic but who do not require CLE credits are most welcome to attend.
