Strafford Publications is putting on what is looking to be an exceptional “Live 90-Minute Telephone Conference with Interactive Q&A” on China Real Estate Law.” The teleconference will take place on Tuesday, January 8, 2008, from 1:00 pm until 2:30 pm Eastern Time and from 2:00 am until 3:30 am, China time.
It is entitled, “Real Estate Investment Under China’s New Land Use Laws: Mitigating Complex Legal Risks, Seizing New Opportunities” and is described as follows:
As China’s population skyrockets past 1.3 billion and the demand for living and office space soars, U.S. investors anxiously seek real estate opportunities there. However, investment restrictions, land ownership rules and China’s unique culture make foreign investment complicated.
New Chinese Property Laws became effective in October 2007, providing some direction for investors. However, regulations limiting foreign access to investment in the Chinese real estate market create continuing uncertainty for U.S. investors.
Listen and participate from your telephone as our panel of real property attorneys explains the current cultural and regulatory environment for real estate investment in China, the legal risks of investing in Chinese real estate and best practices for mitigating those risks.
The following China attorneys will be on the panel:
CLB’s own Steven Dickinson.
Anna Han, with White & Case’s Palo Alto office and a law professor at Santa Clara University.
Amy L. Sommers, with Squire, Sanders & Dempsey’s Shanghai office and co-chair of the ABA’s China Law Committee, and also formerly of Seattle.
The panel will, among other things, be addressing the following questions:
How have the 2007 Chinese Property Laws altered the Chinese government’s treatment of land ownership?
What restrictions did the 2006 regulations place on foreign investments in China’s real estate market?
What are some best practices for mitigating the legal risks of investing in Chinese real estate?
Following the speaker presentations, you’ll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
Don’t miss it.
