Welcome to Doyle's practical guide to business law in Asia

Asia's emerging countries form an integral part of any successful global business strategy and offer tremendous growth opportunities for multinational companies and global entrepreneurs alike. Especially in the current challenging economic climate, the consensus among experts is clear - the future of the global economy is in Asia. But with these vast opportunities also come very real legal challenges and risks.
