The Law Offices of James X. Shu has established close personal relationships with many Chinese companies and law firms. Encouraged by former professors, fellow alumni and friends (many of which are now playing important roles in almost every major city in China), in June of 1994 Mr. Shu went back to China for the purposes of setting up an international law firm in Shanghai.

Having been received warmly by Shanghai officials and with further assistance by local governments, Mr. Shu has successfully established branch/liaison offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. These resources have greatly enhanced the firm's ability to handle complicated and time-sensitive legal matters internationally, and furthered the cause of closer ties between China and the US.

Mr. Shu is now an associate attorney and in-house counsel with All Bright Law Offices (Shanghai) and Alliance Law Office (Beijing). Mr. Shu has also established liaison offices in San Francisco and Chicago with colleagues of similar background, thus further enhancing the ability to serve clients.

The firm follows economic, political, and legal developments in China very closely, maintaining a vast library of materials concerning Chinese law.
