China Desk

Borenius, founded in 1911, is one of the largest and most prominent full-service law firms in Finland. Outside of Finland, we have offices in St. Petersburg (Russia), New York (US) and London (UK). Our New York office opened in 2012, St. Petersburg in 2013 and London in 2020.

Established in 2010, Borenius’ China Desk has a long and market-leading track record of assisting Finnish and other international entities to successfully

  • conduct business in China,
  • work together with Chinese partners, and
  • assist Chinese companies to achieve their business goals in Finland.
How can our China Desk help you?

Borenius’ China Desk comprises lawyers who are trained in both Finland and China. Our lawyers also have excellent language skills in Chinese and they are eligible to practise Chinese law. Our China Desk is stationed in Helsinki, Finland.

We offer our clients in-depth knowledge and a profound understanding of the challenges foreign companies may face when investing in China and of the challenges Chinese investors may face when investing in Finland.

We regularly assist Finnish and international clients with a broad range of matters relating to China, including

  • M&A,
  • investments,
  • corporate governance,
  • commercial agreements and
  • intellectual property matters.

We also act for major Chinese companies (including state-owned enterprises and listed companies) that carry out investment activities in Finland.


We excel at
bridging and overcoming legal, business, and cultural barriers between China and Finland

With our in-depth understanding of both Chinese and Finnish legal systems and business cultures, we function as an appreciated and effective bridge to overcome complex legal, regulatory and cultural nuances in Sino-Finn transactions and projects, as a result of which we help our clients to build a smooth and seamless transition in terms of Sino-Finn cooperation.

Our China Desk is headed by Counsel Sha Wang, a native-Chinese-speaking lawyer with law degrees and practicing experience from both Finland and China. In addition, Chambers Global has recognised her work since 2013.

We also have an extensive network of contacts with law firms in different regions in China if our clients require local support for their questions.


We are a globally recognized and highly ranked law firm

Our expertise is consistently recognized as top tier in Finland by all leading legal directories, such as Chambers and Partners (Global and Europe), IFLR1000 and the Legal 500.

We have been awarded e.g. the titles of the Best Nordic Law Firm (The Lawyer European Awards) and the Most Innovative Finnish Law Firm (the IFLR Europe Awards). These prestigious recognitions were granted to us based on our strategic vision and cross-border capabilities as well as our consistent excellence in the delivery of legal services.

Our commitment to our clients’ success is firmly grounded in strong expertise, innovation, long-term commitment, and genuine involvement in our clients’ business.

We are your China partner with Finnish principles, working seamlessly across jurisdictions, languages and time zones, while making full use of the collective resources of our firm.
