November 4, 2020

Kobre & Kim founding partners Michael Kim and Steve Kobre, together with Asia Pacific Regional Managing Director Lian Lian, kicked off the firm’s participation at the 2020 China International Import Expo (CIIE), which runs in Shanghai from November 5 through November 10.

In a promotional video, Lian comments on the continued growth of China’s economy, and how it improves the position of innovative Chinese companies: “More and more Chinse companies are establishing their positions in the global market as innovators that are increasingly able to compete with major international corporations.” Kobre agrees, pointing to the companies “looking to expand their business abroad,” but also warning of risks and challenges, “especially in the short and medium-term, as the world deals with both a pandemic on the one hand, as well as a global economic downturn.”

In light of this complex landscape, the firm is honored to participate in this year’s conference. Kim explains, “Our firm only focuses on disputes and investigations, and in particular, we focus on helping Chinese companies with difficulties they encounter outside of China.” He adds that, “With the exchange of ideas, we will learn from each other and help in the future prosperity of Chinese companies as they expand overseas.” Kobre ends by congratulating CIIE for hosting the Expo and affirming, “We are confident that everyone is going to have a very positive time.”
