The TMT Group and the Foreign-related Legal Service Group of Wang Jing & GH Law Firm cooperated to provide localized legal compliance service for the distribution of a domestic Internet company’s voice product in six Gulf countries in the Middle East, successfully launching the product locally in June 2020. The cross-group cooperation provided professional legal document support and suggestions on the following aspects: the relative issues concerning establishing a local company for a voice product, the qualifications and permits required for launching a product, and product release’s compliance issues concerning user management, anchors, and customer service management. The successful launch of the product in the Middle East not only earned praise from the client but it also marked a significant step for Wang Jing & GH towards its goal of “becoming a first-tier foreign-related commercial legal service platform in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area”.
With the joining of the Foreign-related Legal Service Group set up and headed by Mr. Sam Wong, the Firm’s founding partner, and other partners, Wang Jing & GH is equipped with more sophisticated practice areas which better match with its international perspectives and strategies. In recent years, the rapid rise of the domestic Internet industry has not only set off a huge industry wave in China but tended to ride on the east wind of globalization to sweep the world. Only with solid legal service experience in the Internet industry and rare and comprehensive foreign-related legal service capability can a law firm manage to help the competent domestic Internet enterprises to legally and compliantly expand to countries around the world. The cooperation of two Groups of Wang Jing & GH was undoubtedly successful, which bore a favorable fruit for the client and also deepened the cooperation cross Groups in the Firm, assuring everyone in Wang Jing & GH of the hope of achieving the goal of “becoming a first-tier foreign-related commercial legal service platform in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area”.
Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has been the main battlefield for the Internet industry all the time and thus has fostered a great number of excellent enterprises related to the Internet. Among them, the enterprises that develop online games, online live broadcast and voice products are the industry leaders with great industrial potential and increasing influence. In 2019, Guangdong’s game industry revenue exceeded RMB175.5 billion, accounting for 75.6% of China’s game industry revenue, and the total output value of Guangdong’s game industry increased by 84.5% in the five years from 2015 to 2019.
The trend that China’s Internet enterprises “go out” will be inevitable and accelerated. It was a small try for Wang Jing & GH to help the Internet enterprises go out this time. With more Internet enterprises going out, Wang Jing & GH’s foreign-related legal service will be more prosperous sooner after.
