Chinese law firm to open first office in North Korea despite sanctions concerns

Jingsh say it will support foreign investment and acquisitions, years after UN sanctions drove out other law firms

A Beijing law firm has announced plans to open an office in Pyongyang in the first half of 2024, a move that would make it the first Chinese firm to operate in the country.

But one expert warned that the services Jingsh plans to offer in North Korea will likely run afoul of international sanctions on the DPRK’s weapons program.
