Duan & Duan puts integrity and responsibility first. Our attorneys serve the society and our clients, in order to uphold justice, promote equality, and improve the rule of law. To our individual attorneys, integrity is a lofty and powerful character; to Duan & Duan, integrity is our ultimate asset.
While fully dedicating ourselves to our clients, we also honor our social responsibilities. We at Duan & Duan believe that it is both our responsibility and our culture to give back to the community.
We at Duan & Duan cannot stress teamwork enough. Despite China’s changing legal market and our constant expansion, our corporate structure and senior management remain stable. We understand that there would be no professionalism without teamwork; and without professionalism, competitive edge would not exist, and Duan & Duan would never survive the test of time.
It is our conviction that lawyers should not only practice what they preach; they should also study it well. We attach great importance to theoretical knowledge and legal research. The professionals at the Duan & Duan Research Institute study and discuss new laws and regulations on a regular basis. Our book series of stage-based case studies constitute a valuable archive of China’s legal service.
