DLA Piper has established a formal association with Mongolian firm C&G Partners.
Identifying a growing need for legal services in a jurisdiction driven by strong resource-linked investments and hard commodity exports, DLA Piper announced the signing of the agreement with C&G Partners this week.
"The relationship with C&G Partners will enable the firm to have a presence in an emerging economy where our clients are doing increasing volumes of business," said Alastair Da Costa, DLA Piper's Asia-Pacific managing director.
"Mongolia is attracting considerable investment from neighbouring G20 economies including Russia, China, Korea, Japan and Australia and as such it is an important market for us to engage with."
The firm's relationship with C&G Partners will be managed by Steven Liu (Beijing), Paul Lee (Hong Kong) and Martin Navias (London/Moscow).
