Philip and his team of dedicated lawyers have been responsible for the development of Chinese connections which recently led to the formal association between DKLM and Zhonglun W & D Law Firm (“ZLWD”).

The Association will further strengthen relationships between China and the UK and will provide a welcome platform for clients both in China and UK to appreciate the important strategic alliance of China and the UK at all levels of business.
