Former Assistant U.S. Trade Representative Joins China Alliance

Former Assistant U.S. Trade Representative (USTR”) for China Affairs Charles W. Freeman III joined The China Alliance on September 1, 2005. The China Alliance is a legal business advisory group that offers clients the most direct link to business opportunities and counsel in the China market. Freeman will be located in Washington, D.C., where he will advise and counsel clients regarding business strategies in China, investment in China, entity formation and restructuring, access to key decision-makers, and guidance to resolving business conflicts and disputes.

As Assistant USTR for China Affairs from 2002 through August 2005, Freeman was the United States' chief China trade negotiator and responsible for the development and implementation of the United States' overall trade policy with respect to China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macao and Mongolia. Since assuming responsibility for the China portfolio at USTR in early 2002, Freeman has been at the heart of the Administration's efforts to secure the benefits of China's World Trade Organization (WTO) accession for American businesses, workers, farmers and service providers. Over the past several years, he has played a central role in negotiating with China and solving problems across a wide range of issues, including intellectual property rights protection; financial and non-financial services; tax, industrial standards and technology policies; and agricultural market access. In April 2004, he was tapped to head a new office at USTR specifically devoted to managing the unique challenges of U.S. trade with China.

One of our goals as a legal business advisory group has been the commitment to provide clients with pertinent professional advice, access to key decision makers, and a pragmatic approach specifically tailored to the Chinese business environment,” said Peter Theut, Director of Global Trade at the law firm of Butzel Long and Executive Committee member of the China Alliance. Charles presents just that – he has unparalleled expertise in dealing with China matters both in North America and in China's primary business and regulatory centers.”

Freeman received his J.D. degree, with honors , from the Boston University School of Law, where he was an Editor of the Law Review, and his B.A. degree, with honors , in Asian Studies with a concentration in Economics from Tufts University. While at Tufts, he studied Mandarin Chinese at the Taipei Language Institute and was awarded a post-graduate fellowship to study Chinese economic policy at Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

The China Alliance is a unique association established in 2003 by four leading independent law firms in response to the increasing importance of China to North American businesses and the global marketplace. The four law firms are Armstrong Teasdale LLP, Butzel Long, and Michael Best & Friedrich LLP located in the U.S., and Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP located in Canada. Office facilities in Shanghai and Beijing offer clients on-the-ground capabilities in China's primary business and regulatory centers.
