Mei Xiaying, Dean of the School of Law, University of International Business and Economics Law, listened carefully to the introductions and spoke highly of its internationalization strategy. He pointed out that in the process of international development, Yingke has developed a path and management mode with its own characteristics, and has made beneficial explorations and examples for all law firms to go abroad in a high-quality manner. Also Mr. Mei Xiaying said that the development and application of Internet technologies call for the legal service industry to start informatization and digital transformation.

Bian Yongmin, Associate Dean of and Professor at the School of Law, University of International Business and Economics

Bian Yongmin, Associate Dean of the School of Law, University of International Business and Economics, said that Yingke’s international development strategy is very courageous. Amid the unprecedented changes in the past century, law firms are facing both challenges and opportunities. Since the “Belt and Road” Initiative is steadily advancing with high quality, Chinese enterprises are confronting a series of problems when “going global”, which urgently needs the support of professional legal services, showing a great potential for legal service industry. The international development direction of “serving the Chinese abroad for better localization” is of great significance.
