Mr. Jan-Wei Liu, the managing partner of Liu & Partners Attorneys-at-Law has been appointed as the legal advisor to the Taiwan-Russia Association (台俄協會) to provide legal, business, strategic and consulting advice. Established in July 2002, the Taiwan-Russia Association has served as an interactive platform for commercial, cultural, academic, technology, and tourism exchanges between the governments and people in Taiwan and Russia. Since 2017, there are more than 400 Russian nationals residing in Taiwan taking up permanent employment or studying at nationally accredited institutions. The Taiwan-Russia Association seeks to strengthen the bilateral relationship through the provision and creation of business opportunities for all the industries and increase cultural exchanges between the people. To that end, the association endeavors to deepen the mutually beneficial arrangement by providing up-to-date industrial news and surveys to encourage investments and joint ventures, as well as organizing seminars and tours for its members to gain a better understanding of the unique culture and advantages of doing business in Russia. However, while language barriers between the Taiwanese and Russians may be bridged by professional interpreters, the association’s members often find it difficult to navigate through the unfamiliar legal environment and struggle to develop a long-term and sustainable business plan. Liu & Partners Attorneys-at-Law thus serves to provide the latest legal analysis on the industrial and governmental regulations and impediments, tax benefits and implications, business risks and opportunities, as well as comprehensive strategic advice on commercial and business exchanges in Russia and Taiwan.
