The growth story of China’s legal and financial industries is both a product and a testimony of this country’s continuous economic transformation: nascent but fast-growing, vastly different from a decade ago and still rapidly changing. The game has started, and faced with various issues, both international and domestic firms are constantly responding, rethinking, reshaping, readjusting… To survive and thrive, they need to master the fine art of balance between growth and profitability, expansion and quality control, opportunities and risks.
The economic landscape and working practices make this market totally atypical and complex, but the country still has a lot to offer. More than ten years after the arrival en masse of the British and American law firms, Germany is weighing its options and heading for greater stability.
International mergers, evolving client needs, arrival of international heavyweights and the drop of oil and gas prices are transforming the Canadian legal landscape. From Toronto to Montréal, legal actors of leading established law firms to boutique law firms have to find the right chemistry to survive and differentiate themselves from newer faces in the industry. Global is the new game. We pursue this metamorphosis with its Canadian leaders.
