It appears that it was the result of a compromise between China, who did not want to commit to opening up the market to permit foreign lawyers to practise Chinese law, and the European Union (‘EU’), who were keen to formalise the existing realities. Given that it was expressly included in the permitted business scope, EU negotiators appear to have believed that this would allow foreign law firms to offer services on Chinese law.
