I have experienced dealing with numerous Lawyers within both China and Hong Kong.However my experience with an American Lawyer based in China was at the very least quite a surprise , here is a most professional Lawyer in every aspect ,but above all a complete "gentleman"
Francis J Caruso has been handling all my company and private legal work in Hong kong / China for the past 7 years. I have found Mr Caruso legal firm to be thoroughly professional, competent and above all totally trustworthy. His advise has been absolutely crucial for the success of my trading and China manufacturing businesses. I strongly recommend any company and / or person whom wishes to enter in to any business venture in Hong Kong or mainland China contact Mr Caruso's firm for assistance and up to date advise regarding the formation and legal ramifications before undertaking any new proposed venture.
In dealing with a transactional dispute with a Chinese supplier, it was quite surprising to see how little our interests were protected by the Chinese law, but also how much they could have been protected if we'd taken the proper precautions. Regardless, with Mr. Caruso's help, we recovered funds we thought were lost. He is absolutely top-notch, and is the only international consultant we've worked with who seems capable of interpreting the Chinese law. For this we've recommended his firm to two separate parties and are very grateful.
Working with Mr. Caruso was a refreshing experience. While dealing with all the headaches & pitfalls of establishing an international business in Hong Kong, Mr. Caruso made sure that we were set up to reap the greatest tax & licensing benefits available. He always kept lines of communication open & freely answered any & all questions we posited (with no sneaky bills, I might add).
Since establishing our company, Mr. Caruso has worked with us on a number of contractual & banking issues, & we've successfully referred no less than four friends to him. We plan on working with Chinatex & Mr. Caruso for a long time.
