About Us

Hogan Lovells Fidelity offers integrated international and domestic Chinese legal advice to clients in the region and globally.

Hogan Lovells International LLP ("Hogan Lovells") and Fujian Fidelity Law Firm ("Fidelity") have created a non-legal person association in the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone. The association operates under the "Hogan Lovells Fidelity" brand, a trading name of the Fujian Fidelity Law Firm Hogan Lovells International LLP (Shanghai Pilot Free Trade Zone) Associated Office.

Located in the Lujiazui district of Shanghai, Hogan Lovells Fidelity provides integrated contentious and non-contentious international and domestic Chinese legal advice to its clients. It combines strengths from both Hogan Lovells and Fidelity initially focusing on intellectual property litigation, general corporate, financial securities, litigation and arbitration and regulatory compliance.  Hogan Lovells Fidelity allows Hogan Lovells and Fidelity to significantly broaden their client offering in China and to continually combine technical excellence with commercial acumen to better support its clients with their business needs in the region and globally.

This association is the third association that has been approved by Chinese government in Shanghai Free Trade Zone.  It is a strategic response to the increasingly sophisticated and diverse needs of international and Chinese clients in the Chinese market.

As required by the relevant Chinese rules, Hogan Lovells and Fidelity will remain as two separate legal entities.
