Current Projects

Experts in Cross-Cultural U.S. - Chinese Business Communication & Negotiation, Joint Ventures and Complex Dispute Resolution

Effective cross-cultural communication is the greatest challenge for both Chinese and Western counterparties. Differences in context, time and decision-making process is a source of friction, misunderstanding and frustration for both sides of a negotiation.  It is also a primary reason that many joint-ventures and collaborations fail or never even get off the ground after significant time and expense.  Misunderstandings of local business practices and conflict resolution often leads to early termination of China direct investments and joint ventures.


Michael Chen and Seth Richard Freeman, CIRA, our senior officers each have decades of cross-cultural business communication and negotiation experience.  Engaging EM Capital Management (Hong Kong) Limited to assist with your China-related situation will reduce misunderstandings.  Our directors facilitate effective negotiation and mitigate lost opportunity risk resulting from excessive time and resources invested in the typical Chinese cross-border negotiation process.
