China Desk

Our presence in the Asia-Pacific region is extensive with primary offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong and additional locations in Malaysia, Singapore, Bangkok, Taiwan and Indonesia. These are among the more than 440 locations in 125 countries through which we offer integrated services to our U.S. and Chinese clients as the lead North American partner in the PKF global network of independent accounting and advisory firms.

Meet the Partners

As the Chinese government encourages its businesses to explore previously untapped markets, our talented partners and professionals are ready with their technical expertise, cultural insight, valuable connections and outstanding language proficiency.

An Innate Understanding of Chinese Business and Culture

With deep experience across diverse industries in both the public and private sectors, our specialists support Chinese enterprises entering U.S. markets and American companies expanding into China. Their in-depth grasp of Chinese and U.S. customs and business operations equips them to develop innovative, yet realistic, cross-border solutions to a range of business circumstances and situations.

Uncommon Partner Involvement

Unlike at other firms, our partners actively participate in client engagements, bringing to bear their past experience serving in Chinese national, provisional and municipal government positions as well as the strong connections they still maintain there.

"Fulfilling client objectives is paramount. We achieve this by combining technical expertise with real-time experience in Asian markets."
