This webinar took place on the 13th October and is now available 'on-demand'.

China and UK trade and investment is in a challenging period due to recent global events and politics.

We will also have a market update from one of the experts, and a measured view from the Chinese side, a lawyer based in Shanghai.

  • Zo Hoida, President of BCBF and Real Estate Partner at Browne Jacobson – Chair
  • Pavanjeet Kaur, Property Lawyer at Browne Jacobson and Rebecca Hawkins, Tax Lawyer at Browne Jacobson – Registration of ownership in the UK and changes for foreign investors/recent updates in the property tax regime
  • Monique Royle, Divisional director at Fleurets – Market Update
  • David Zou, Partner at Grandway Law - "Shifting Mindset and its Impact on Chinese Outbound Investment in UK Property

If you can't make the live session but would like to receive a copy of the on-demand recording, we would encourage you to still register for the event.
