SGLA Law Firm (SGLA) was jointly founded by members of the former Sino-Global Legal Alliance, an alliance recognized as a leading practicer by international rating agencies. SGLA is now a large complex of top regional firms, serving the needs of both our domestic and international clients.
Compared with other professional service providers, we focus on helping our clients navigate through the diverse and complex Chinese market by providing comprehensive and valuable risk management services backed by our abundant regional resources and experience.
Through unique and sound strategic partnerships, we have long been offering professional insights for our clients to manage the risks of cross-regional and transnational operations. We provide not only highly consistent legal services at any time but also the highest quality advice and assistance for important matters.
We aim to grow with our clients and are willing to listen to their ideas and learn the trends of their industries. We will combine a global vision with local resources and experience to build a holistic, client-centric, professional service system to ensure that we will be trusted in the next 10, 20 years, and beyond.
SGLA represents the first attempt at the N + 1 model in China's legal profession. This model allows for close, diversified, long-term partnerships between multiple firms under one brand based on mutual recognition in management concepts, business standards, and strategic planning. Following the regional market development theory, SGLA takes the provincial and municipal offices as the “first-level branches” and part of the SGLA brand jointly run by our co-founders. This model leverages the advantages and equal participation of local offices and is also conducive to the steady growth of the SGLA brand.
SGLA holds high standards for the establishment of offices and teams across the country and we keep focusing on regional market business teams and law firms as potential partners. All of our existing offices were once among the top local firms. They can keep their operating styles which have been proven to be effective for the operation in the corresponding areas over the years. And we can benefit from their well-established business reputation and profound influence. Through our integrated operation and management system, offices can keep scaling up in their respective regional markets while building highly collaborative service capabilities.
SGLA boasts a strong and close strategic partnership with Hogan Lovells International LLP. We fully recognize each other’s commitment to high management, business, and service standards. Through smooth collaboration, SGLA can provide one-stop service to customers in 55 major economic centers in the Asia-Pacific region, Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Oceania, and Africa.
