Tune in to hear his seasoned advice on choosing the right city, getting a visa, finding proper support agencies, putting down capital, applying for licensing and of course, how to best chip away at the long list of required business registrations.
Ep#120: Structuring your business
With many viable options to set up an organization in China, how do you determine which is right for you? What limitations might you put on yourself if you go it alone, without a local partner?

Ep#128: Protecting your intellectual property
Is Intellectual Property Right in China a joke? I mean, it doesn’t take long to form the biased conclusion that China is still a bit of an IP Wild, Wild West, right? In this episode Patrick walks through the registration of trademarks and patents and the legal liabilities for infringement of IP in China, including the changes that are happening across China to ensure proper protection for those of us with IP that we’d rightly like to protect.
Ep#128: Dispute resolution in China
In this final episode in our Start-Up Law series, Patrick talks through some of the main types of disputes he has seen involving laowai in China, the process for filing a dispute, how to properly gather evidence to support your case and how to actually minimize your chances of getting caught up in a lawsuit in the first place.
