Crowley Millar is the Irish member of China Global Investment & Trade Alliance (www.cgita.com). Its goal is to develop investment, commerce and business partnerships between China and the World. We are proud to be the exclusive Irish member of CGITA and to offer our unique services to Chinese clients wishing to conduct business in Ireland. Our membership of CGITA allows Crowley Millar to understand the needs of its Chinese clients, arrange strategic partnerships and provide the necessary services to maximise the business potential for Chinese clients in Ireland.
In tandem with our membership of CGITA we recently established a Chinese department in the firm which is headed up by Ping Bai, a qualified Chinese Lawyer.
Our goals are four fold :-
- Attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)
The advantage of doing business in Ireland, such as its favourable rate of taxation, its reputation as a mergers and acquisition base for international companies, its highly educated and skilled workforce, and its favourable business investment incentives, are all made easily accessible to Chinese clients by Crowley Millar’s local and international partnerships (legal, financial & tax) and our dedicated Chinese lawyer. Through our understanding of Chinese business culture Crowley Millar have developed an easily accessible platform for Chinese clients to gain the maximum benefits of conducting business in Ireland, whether it be by investing in Real Estate, buying companies, investing in technology companies etc. Please also see attached presentation that our business development Partner John W Carroll gave in China last year.
- Immigrant Investor Programme
The Immigrant Investor Programme (IIP) invites non-EEA nationals to commit to an approved investment in Ireland. Crowley Millar will through its Chinese Desk process applications for approval on behalf of Chinese investors. Successful applicants can expect to receive a residency visa for 5 years during which time they along with their family members can work and study in Ireland. After this initial 5 years period, the investor will be free to apply for citizenship. No minimum residence requirement is set other than the stipulation that the persons concerned should visit Ireland at least once in every 12 month period. Since we established our Chinese department in April 2016 we have already received numerous instructions from a well-known Investment Fund on behalf of clients looking to avail of the programme.
- Facilitate Irish businesses exporting goods and products to China
As the exclusive Irish member of CGITA, we can facilitate Irish companies looking to export their goods and products to China. Through our membership Irish companies can, if their products meet certain criteria, secure the appropriate licenses to allow their sale in China. In particular we can through the contacts we have built up in the association arrange for suitable products to be sold in a large supermarket chain in Shanghai (population 30m) and countless hotels in that region. The fact that we can open such doors is very significant in that heretofore Irish entrepreneurs have though red tape etc found it nearly impossible to break into the Chinese market. Since we joined the association late last year we already have a client who through our efforts is now exporting his product into Shanghai.
- Provide legal service to Chinese communities in Ireland
Crowley Millar is a full service law firm offering a wide range of legal services including Litigation, Taxation, Employment Law, Corporate and Commercial Law, Financial Services, ICT, Aircraft Leasing, Property transactions etc. With the recent establishment of our Chinese department, which is manned by Ping Bai from China, it is our intention to grow that department by targeting the local Chinese community for all their day to day legal work. We are an active member of the Ireland China Business Association and are fully confident and committed to serve the Chinese communities in Ireland.
