China and Hong Kong don't need lawyers. Almost everyone pleads guilty. Those who don't are found guilty. It is an efficient process.

I'd seek advice about UK Law Firm certified to operate in China from UK Embassy in China.

 

Yahoo-gle:

 

http://www.legal500.com/c/china/directory

 

http://www.hg.org/lawfirms/china/beijing.html

 

You can seek for lawyer recommendation on both links. 

 

See also 'UK Law Firm operate in China' or 'UK Law firm certified to operate in China' for more web links on Yahoo search.

If your interest is corporate law and not domestic law, the lawyers that represent HSBC in Hong Kong, since HSBC is also in London would be my first call, perhaps check with the bank for a referral.

Before you venture into the unknown learn some terms related to your topic "barrister" , "solicitor", and "club of nine".

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
