Departments and Services
Welcome to RJ, your best business and legal partner! We are one of the nation’s leading corporate, transactional and litigation law firms, with over 20 legal professionals including in-house lawyers licensed in Taiwan, Germany, France and United States.
We represent diverse clients, both local and international firms, from our offices strategically located in two major Taiwan cities and many affiliated law offices in Asia, Europe and America. Our Taichung branch in Taiwan makes us unique among Taiwan's international law firms and enables us to better serve your business needs all over Taiwan.
For nearly a decade, RJ teams have provided legal and business counseling, court representation for business, judicial and arbitration proceedings in every field of business and law. We have helped our corporate and individual clients like you doing business in Taiwan, Mainland China, Asia, Europe, Canada,
the United States and South Africa and Vietnam involving the multi-cultural, multi-jurisdictional laws and regulations. Increasingly, we represent non-Taiwanese companies and foreign individuals with legal and business needs worldwide.
At RJ, we speak Mandarin and Taiwanese and many major foreign languages including Japanese, English, French and German. The excellent language skills enable RJ attorneys to offer efficient services to clients from all over the world, with highest courtesy and professional quality.
Our firm provides the extensive transactional and litigation experience, and the geographic versatility of a large national firm while retaining the best attributes of a small one. We are big enough to manage the most challenging matters for our multi-national clients, yet are still small enough to provide most effective personal legal service for those small to medium sized businesses that is the life-blood of Taiwan.
Thank you for taking time to review how to use our services productively. We deeply appreciate you for choosing RJ, your best win-win partner in business and law, and we hope to serve you now and grow together with you in the new millenium.
