The new China office is located in Room 17B, No. 1 Building, No. 11 Garden, Yu Yuan Tan South Road, Haidian District, 100036 Beijing. It is aimed at both Chinese and foreign clients who need legal advice and require our services for internalization, facilitating bonds between customers and international markets.
The opening of a new representative office in China is a big step for growth and expansion of the international network of law firms in BGI. One of the concepts on which Balms Group International bases itself is the determination to offer a comprehensive service to its clients worldwide, either working with member firms from different jurisdictions in the same case or referring the matter to a partner from another jurisdiction or country. With the continued economic growth of China and the importance of the country in the world economy, the act of opening a new office in Beijing became a priority. The Asian market is absolutely key to BGI and, within Asia, China appears to be the ideal country to begin this expansion. Thus BGI provides legal advice in the top four continents through more than fifty offices worldwide.
Following the presentation of all documentation for opening the new office, Mr Juan Luis Balmaseda de Ahumada and Mr. Jim Broberg, along with their new partners, held several workshops focused on office management and the planning of several possible investments for clients in Asia, but mainly in Spain, Gibraltar, South America and Eastern Europe.
The BGI office was looked after superbly, as usual, and was presented with the best treatment, professionally and gastronomically above all, confirming that Beijing is part of the Balms family. In addition to workshops and professional meetings, they were able to enjoy the city and visit famous landmarks such as the Summer Palace and participate in the well-known and traditional tea ritual.
The next visit to the Chinese office, lead by Mr. Zengh Lixing and Mr. Fu Ming (barring unforeseen circumstances), will be in late March and the official opening of the representative office of Balms Beijing will be held in late April.
Balms Beijing has confirmed they will attend the next International Congress of BGI which will take place on the 17th, 18th and 19th of May in the city of Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.
