ABOUT THE FIRM
JT&N was founded in 1992 in Beijing by a group of young PRC attorneys dedicated to creating a world-class law firm in China. Today, JT&N is one of the most dynamic law firms in the country, as well as one of the largest, with over 260 attorneys. JT&N has distinguished itself as a leader in multiple areas of legal practice, both international and domestic. The firm’s network of regional offices, working in close collaboration with the head office in Beijing, represents clients on a wide range of matters, from foreign direct investment, M&A, banking and financial regulation, real estate, asset management, intellectual property, insurance, tax and entertainment, to international trade, WTO dispute resolution, commercial arbitration and white-collar criminal litigation. Our clients include Fortune 500 corporations, government agencies, international and domestic financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturers, hedge funds and PE firms, venture capital firms, IT companies, high tech start-ups, real estate and infrastructure development companies and auction houses.
JT&N is valued by its clients for its ability to deliver tailored, integrated, strategic and technical legal advice on every aspect of a wide variety of transactions in China. The firm’s multi-disciplinary expertise in supporting international clients underpins our success. Many JT&N partners bring substantial international legal experience to their practice at the firm – our attorneys have practiced with major international law firms in the US, the UK, Germany, Japan and Hong Kong — and many hold advanced degrees from top-ranked PRC, US and European universities and law schools.
JT&N’s philosophy is grounded in the fundamental view that every client has the entire firm at its disposal, with the result that the skills and experience of every practice area are brought to bear on whichever matter may require them. The firm excels at providing highly focused and knowledgeable local expertise along with an international, “big-picture” sensibility. Our lawyers closely align themselves with the perspective and concerns of our clients while remaining highly attuned to local issues, regulations and business customs. JT&N’s facility at operating on all these levels, with a high degree of excellence in each of them, makes the firm an important and trusted resource for our clients.
2008 Merger with Tianlun & NEED International Practice Group Creates JT&N
In February 2008, the merger between Jincheng, Tongda and the international practice group of Tianlun & NEED was finalized, creating a new firm, JT&N. This merger is the most recent step taken by Jincheng aimed at enhancing its ability to provide the highest standard of legal advice and service to an ever-expanding roster of clients. The addition of the Tianlun & NEED lawyers significantly strengthens the firm’s international expertise and experience, and is proof positive of the firm’s commitment to taking its place as one of the foremost international law firms in China.
