Troutman Sanders LLP has opened an office in Beijing.
The new office is the third in China for the firm, which started a Hong Kong office in 1997 and an office in Shanghai in 2007.
With the addition, Troutman has about three dozen lawyers in China.
The new office will be led by Allen Shyu, a corporate lawyer who most recently was a partner in a Hong Kong firm. Shyu went to law school in the U.S. and is a member of the Illinois and Indiana bars. Four other lawyers are joining Troutman from his old firm, for a total of seven lawyers in the new Beijing office.
