Attorneys & Support Staff
AsiaBridge Law (ABL) maintains a network of professional, affordable and fully-licensed attorneys across China (& S. E. Asia). ABL itself is not a law firm and legal advice is provided by the lawyers in the network.
Our paralegals are bilingual Asians or Westerners who coordinate the Asian lawyers on behalf of the client. We provide account management to our clients in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Russian and other major languages.
AsiaBridge Law’s paralegals, support staff and the attorneys in our network all work remotely. We don’t have fancy offices or even a traditional boardroom! Rather than waste money on physical infrastructure, we choose to invest in systems and staff. Visit here to learn how we keep costs down. This allows us to effectively manage remote teams and deliver a superior service to our clients.

One of our local lawyers, in their own words:
“I understand how the big multinational law firms work, and AsiaBridge can provide the same level of service at much better rate. Thanks to our international team, not only do we offer excellent communications and world-class project management, but we have the local understanding and great local lawyers on the ground.”
