China Law and Its Development

What is the advantages and disadvantages of limited liability company in China

Each state has different rules governing the formation of a limited liability company. For instance, in North Dakota, a foreign LLC is not allowed for banking or farming. Some states will want a publication notice with the local newspaper that a company has been formed. Check with your local state office for further details.

This article should provide you with the basics of limited liability companies and help guide your decision of company business formation. Each state's laws differ as well as each company situation. It is advisable to seek tax and legal counsel to determine the best choice for your individual circumstance.


How to set up a C corporation in China

A limited liability company is similar to US C corporation. Creating a C Corporation is more complicated than forming a limited liability company or a sole proprietorship, but there are several tax benefits your company could enjoy.

This is a brief guide for creating a C Corporation, which also is called a regular corporation. Please consult financial and tax advisers for more detailed information.


How To Find A Good Patent Attorney in China

I recommend that you begin the patent process by doing your own legwork on how to get a patent. Go to your local library and read Peter Chu's  "Patent It Yourself" book as well as any other books on the subject. This book is also available at China main law bookstores.

Although this research can be time consuming, if you familiarize yourself with the steps involved, you will have a good general understanding of the legal process involved, which will help you work better with your patent attorney, and ultimately help you cut your costs in the long run.


The importance of registering your trademark in China

  1. Trademerk registration makes it easier to protect a mark against would-be copiers in China market.A trademark is either a word, phrase, symbol or design, or plural combination, which identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods or services of one party from those of others.
  2. A service mark is the same as a trademark except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product.

Source of Foreign Employee Rights in China employment law

When the economy slows, companies run into difficulties, businesses scale back their workforce, and layoffs increase. Rumors may start flying that lay-offs are imminent and jobs are at risk. In fact, if you look at what has happened with major corporations recently, downsizing is often not predictable.

Contract Rights
Employees who have an individual contract with their employer or employees covered by a union/collective bargaining agreement would be covered under the stipulations in the contract if their employment is terminated.
