About SLP



  •        Sphere Logic Partners ("SLP") is a partnership law firm that was founded in April, 2000. It is headquartered in Xiamen, Fujian, with a branch in Quanzhou, Fujian. Since its foundation, SLP has been committed to providing high-quality commercial legal services to a broad range of clients. Thanks to SLP lawyers’ unique business perpective, they are well-equipped to assist clients as they carry out their business activities, and are able to effectively protect their legitimate business interests. SLP has won an ever increasing number of honors as a result of its continuous efforts in the field of commercial legal services.

Well-established in such business areas as litigation and arbitration, corporate business, and criminal defense, SLP is also a pioneer in the fields of supply chain, intellectual property rights, foreign and cross-border business, customs matters and trade compliance, as well as corporate liquidation and bankruptcy. We have gradually formed distinctive service advantages that have attracted an increasing number of leading clients from many industries, and we act as these clients’ primary legal service provider.
           At the same time, based on a long history of positive interaction with local government and its functional departments and rich experience gained over many years, SLP has been appointed year after year as a government legal adviser and special legal service provider.
           Most of SLP's lawyers graduated with a degree in law from one of China’s key colleges or universities, and many have studied or worked in major countries of Europe or America.

With the advancement of the Internet and globalization, SLP's lawyers have broadened their vision to provide customers with more forward-looking and precise commercial legal services.
           While providing high-quality legal services, SLP is always aware of the social responsibility that should be borne by law firms.

Through such social activities, SLP has brought itself into close contact with the public, endeavored to fully play its role in terms of social responsibility, and established its brand and reputation.

  • Legal Services in the Context of Globalization
           Modern China offers many amazing opportunities. However it also presents many challenges—some new and unknown, some long-lived. How to enter the vast and complex Chinese market, which is deeply influenced by historical and cultural factors, is a strategic issue that every transnational corporation must in the long term confront. For rapidly growing Chinese enterprises, the obvious next step is to go after opportunities overseas, further gaining global recognition and respect. No matter what kind of enterprises they are, they need, in different degrees, the support of Chinese law firms with a wide vision, rich experience, international resources and a profound understanding of culture and real practices both in China and abroad.
