Practice Areas
Representing over 50 financial institutions in Asia, Weir & Associates has a well-earned reputation as a business-minded, transaction-oriented law firm.

Connecting Business to China

Hong Kong is a key investment and logistics portal, and a pivotal gateway to mainland China. Many multinational corporations already have regional head offices in Hong Kong to utilize the city’s competitive advantages and to serve as a base for entering into the China market. Weir & Associates has served many of these corporations in establishing their presence in Hong Kong and developing a nexus into mainland China.

In 2006, Weir & Associates became a registered foreign law firm in mainland China and opened an office in Shanghai marking our commitment to expanding our scope of services so clients can more easily implement their business plans in mainland China.
