    Dacheng has an unrivalled legal network of maritime legal services, with branch offices in almost all major ports and logistics centers in China. Dacheng is able to offer first class professional services in all Chinese ports with effective local support.  The Dacheng shipping team currently has over 45 lawyers, among which 21 are partners. A majority of the lawyers had studied at the two leading Chinese maritime universities in Shanghai and Dalian, and the rest came from top law schools of Peking University, China University of Political Science and Law, Fudan University and Wuhan University etc. Some of the lawyers had also attended LLM programs in Europe or the US and had worked in international law firms.

     2010 was the milestone in the history of Dacheng’s shipping practice. LC & Co., the specialist shipping firm in Shanghai, merged with Dacheng in November. In addition, dozens of shipping lawyers joined Dacheng in its various branch offices in the same year. The strength of Dancheg’s shipping practice has since been greatly enhanced. Dacheng is now amongst the largest shipping practices in China.  Dacheng is also proud to have several retired senior maritime judges in its shipping team who act as consultants. The shipping team of Dacheng advises on all aspects of maritime and admiralty law, both contentious and non-contentious, and has wide experiences in handling complex international disputes or cross-board transactions.

     Dacheng has over 30 branch offices in China, including the following major port cities and logistics centers: Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao, Jinan, Shanghai, Nanjing, Nantong, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Zhoushan, Xiamen, Fuzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Haikou, Nanning, Chongqing, Chengdu, Wuhan, Kunming, Xi’an and Urumqi which are ready to provide quality services to the maritime industry.
