Lessons Learned for U.S. Businesses Operating in China

China’s expanded “Anti-Espionage Law” has been in effect for nearly a year now. The new law significantly expanded the scope of covered espionage activities and established broad criteria for determining espionage behavior, while granting extensive investigative power to Chinese national security agencies.

The broadening of the law has brought unexpected risk to normal operations of U.S. businesses in China. What should U.S. businesses operating in China know about their risks under the law, and what lessons can be gleaned from China’s policy and enforcement actions so far?

This webinar will review key provisions under China’s expanded Anti-Espionage Law and areas of risk for U.S. businesses operating in China. The webinar will discuss activities that could trigger these provisions and strategies for reducing potential legal risk. The webinar will also discuss the convergence of the Anti-Espionage Law with U.S. regulatory requirements, such as required due diligence under U.S. export control laws. Finally, the webinar will also review lessons learned from activity and enforcement actions under the law so far.
