Brain Trust Recommended in Corporate and M&A at Asialaw Profiles

Corporate law is one of the core practice areas of Brain Trust. For many years, Brain Trust has acquired abundant practical experience in assisting legal advice with regard to operation, commercial documentation, and corporate governance. Brain Trust has always conducted due diligence investigations with respect to the financing, equity structure, distribution rights, or rights of agency required by multinational corporations, to assist clients in controlling risks and preventing unnecessary disputes. As Brain Trust grew, the corporate and commerce sector have also become our core competency. For example, in 2017, we assisted Pharmadax in a $25 million negotiation with Sihuan Pharmaceutical Holdings Group over investment agreement issues.
