Our team consists of over 100 Taiwan-licensed attorneys, dozens of attorneys qualified in other jurisdictions, and licensed professionals with a wide range of expertise. We have dedicated task forces in place that assist clients in applying for investment permits, company/ business/ tax registrations, and permits of licensed businesses.

With the growth of Taiwan's economy and the government's efforts to attract investments followed by technology cooperation opportunities, we have been representing both domestic and international clients in major investment projects inside and outside of export processing zones, industrial zones and science parks. We have been involved in the formulation and amendment of various legislations that shape the corporate and cross-border investment practices in Taiwan. We have also participated in the planning and execution of worldwide investment promotion activities sponsored by the Taiwanese government, with an aim to establish a better legal framework for the investment environment.
