Arion Legal together with its associated company in the Lao PDR, Arion Legal Lao (Sole) Co Ltd is pleased to announce the signing on 19 June 2015 of a Framework Agreement for Strategic Co-operation with the Yunnan Baqian Law Firm (Baqian).

The signing of the agreement follows closely on the heels of the signing in Canberra on 15 June 2015 of the China – Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA). An integral part of ChAFTA is the development of closer cooperation between commercial law firms from China and Australia in the effective provision of transnational legal services.

Baqian is a leading law firm in Yunnan, PR China, with its main office in Kunming, and is recognised as one of the largest, most comprehensive and leading law firms in Western China following years of sustainable and rapid development.

Under the Strategic Co-operation Agreement the firms will –

  • work to foster outbound direct investment from PR China into Australia, Lao PDR and other Asia Pacific countries;
  • recognise each other as their primary strategic partner in each party’s respective territory and pursue business co-operation with that party in its territory;
  • undertake joint promotional and business development activities in Australia, PR China and Lao PDR in the pursuit of common business goals; and
  • locate secondee lawyers in each other’s offices.

Since establishing its operations in the Lao PDR in 2008, Arion Legal has worked with China based investors and financiers on a number of large infrastructure developments within that country and the signing of the Framework Agreement for Strategic Co-operation with Baqian is a significant step in the development of closer business and client links in China which will enable both Baqian and Arion Legal to further their transnational legal services.
