INTRODUCTION

The COVID-19 outbreak in the United States has wreaked havoc on the U.S. economy.  In response, the U.S. government has taken extensive measures to stabilize and stimulate the economy.  The most recent such measure is a piece of legislation delivering an economic rescue package, the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (the “CARES Act”).  The CARES Act was passed by both Houses of Congress last week and was signed into law by President Trump on March 27, 2020.

Why Amend

The Foreign Investment Law of the People’s Republic of China (the “Foreign Investment Law”) that issued last year came into effect on  January 1, 2020 together with the supporting Regulations for the Implementation of the Foreign Investment Law of the People’s Republic of China (the “Implementation Regulations”). Upon its taking effect, the Foreign Investment Law repealed the three fundamental laws which previously regulated foreign-invested enterprises (“FIEs”) in China – the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Sino-foreign Equity Joint Ventures (the “Equity Joint Ventures Law”), the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Sino-foreign Contractual Joint Ventures (the “Contractual Joint Ventures Law”) and the Law of the People’s Republic of China on Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises (collectively referred to as the “Three Laws governing FIEs”), together with their corresponding implementation regulations and detailed implementation rules, were repealed thereafter.  As a result, the relevant provisions on corporate governance and control in the Three Laws governing FIEs no longer apply. Continue Reading Why not Use the Time of Telework to Amend the AOA of FIEs?

Key Contract: Adrian Perkins   Justin McDonnell   Intan Eow

While medical researchers across the world race to develop a vaccine to the COVID-19 virus, lawyers and corporate clients are testing for vulnerabilities to trade and other restrictions imposed by governments to mitigate against the spread of COVID-19. What if I cannot meet my contractual obligation to import or export goods to or from China? What if travel restrictions mean I cannot meet certain contractual deadlines?

信息披露历来是上市公司监管的重点,也是行政处罚、刑事处罚和民事诉讼的多发领域。随着新修订的《中华人民共和国证券法》(以下称“新《证券法》”)的施行,上市公司将因信息披露违法而面临最高1000万元的行政处罚以及代表人诉讼或“退出制集团诉讼”。新法一出,迅速引起社会关注。舆论普遍认为新法能够加大对上市公司信息披露违法行为的震慑和打击,加强对投资者合法权益的保护。作为长期代理上市公司行政处罚听证和民事诉讼的律师团队,我们在支持前述立法目的同时,也有一些对于法律实施过程中责、权、利失衡的担忧。 Continue Reading 上市公司信息披露违法的责任会不会太重了?

《海关法》是进出境活动应当遵循的基本法律规范。现行《海关法》于2000年全面修订并确立了现在的主要监管制度,2001年1月1日起施行,到2020年已经是第20个年头。随着国务院机构改革后出入境检验检疫职责并入海关,以及近年来海关基于简政放权和高效监管推行的一系列业务改革和制度创新,很多方面已经突破了《海关法》的现有规定,《海关法》的再次“大修”也提上了议事日程。 Continue Reading 借《海关法》“大修”之际 展望中国海关进出口监管制度的发展趋势(上)
