Armstrong Teasdale Expanding in China; Move Reflects More China- Midwest Trade, a Boom in Intellectual Property Law There


Logan, Tim, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Armstrong Teasdale is looking to the East for growth.

The Clayton-based law firm is expanding its Asian practice, sending veteran international practice partner Tom Bottini to Shanghai and hiring a top Chinese corporate lawyer to help staff its office there. And it has big plans for further growth there.

The move comes as trade between China and the Midwest continues to grow, and thorny issues like intellectual property law continue to crop up.

"We are taking these initial steps in response to a steady influx of international transactional business and increasing opportunities for investments in both the United States and Asia," said Michael Chivell, Armstrong Teasdale's managing partner. "The explosive demand for legal services in this area, especially intellectual property, is the driver for allocating additional firm resources to Asia."

Armstrong has had an office in Shanghai since 1994 and a license to practice law there since 2000. It's one of only about 75 U.S. law firms with such a license in mainland China, according to business website China Briefing. The only other with a large St. Louis presence is Bryan Cave.

Armstrong's relatively long ties in Shanghai, and its "Midwest pricing structure," have given it some advantages over bigger-name New York and California firms that practice in China. But its relatively small office there means it ships a lot of work back to the U.S., which has drawbacks.
