Corporate Accountability

TransAsia assists companies and their officers, directors and employees to understand and comply with PRC anti-bribery laws as well as corporate governance and "whistleblower" regulations.  We have also represented clients in criminal cases involving allegations related to customs and trade secrets and other critical matters.  Mindful of China's unique legal and political environment, we also help to build and develop internal compliance programs.

Our professionals keep abreast of the laws and regulations affecting our client's business practices to ensure the legality and continuation of their operations in China.  Our nimble, on-the-ground operating style and local know-how make our services highly sought-after.

In conjunction with our international network of firms, we advise on the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Sarbanes-Oxley and on EU anti-corruption laws, as they apply to foreign corporations doing business in China.
