Edward Epstein has lived in China and Hong Kong for more than 30 years, including more than 20 years in Shanghai. In that time, he was the managing partner of an AmLaw 100 firm and represented multinational corporations specializing in M&A, real estate and general corporate affairs. He has received numerous legal accolades, including being voted one of China's top 100 Lawyers in 2016 and 2017 and a BTI Client Service All-Star.
Now as a barrister at GILT Chambers in Hong Kong specializing in cross-border corporate and commercial disputes in China and as an independent legal advisor, he continues to provide his expertise to multinational companies to navigate the legal bureaucracy and practices in China. In particular, he focuses on corporate strategy and risk management, including market entry, business expansion as well as downsizing large manufacturing facilities, and investigations. He can act as an "outside in-house" both routinely and in crisis management and is adept at resolving disputes both with third parties and local regulatory authorities.
