Beijing, China, June 12, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Lehman, Lee & Xu was asked by the US Viterbo University to host on June 6, 2009, a class of students from various disciplines, including MBA and law programs, visiting Beijing for a research project on Chinese business and culture. The goal of the firm is to educate both Chinese and foreigners on the value of the Chinese rule of law. Viterbo University was established in 1937 in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and represents one of the fastest-growing education institutions in the US, providing a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees.
Foreign legal counsel Aldo Settimio Boni de Nobili and summer interns Eric Langland and Senayt Rahwa delivered a series of lectures on the Chinese business culture and legal system, analyzing main issues that foreign investors face when investing in the Chinese market and their respective solutions from a law firm’s perspective. The feedback from the students was rewarding for the law firm, which is regularly invited by overseas universities to organize lectures for students on Chinese law and customs. The event also presented a good opportunity for their summer interns Eric and Senayt to develop their public speaking skills and to improve their knowledge of Chinese law.
The right approach to the Chinese market, intellectual property protection and a practical understanding of employment law are all issues that China-oriented businesses face. To effectively establish a commercial presence on the Chinese territory, businesses must be knowledgeable in these areas and their presentations work toward this end.
