Management, Markets and Legal Consulting Group. International Lawyers and Consultants. 

MMLC was developed from a major international law firm in Beijing in 2002, to provide clients with cost-effective, highly confidential and results-driven legal and business services.  
Founded by intellectual property and M&A lawyer, Matthew Murphy, and trade consultant, Ellen Wang, the firm has represented most members of the Global Fortune 500 over the last twelve years in China and the Asia Pacific region, as well as governments and successful start-ups.
All lawyers and consultants at MMLC have worked in China since the 1990s and are Chinese speakers. Most MMLC lawyers have studied Chinese law at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and are internationally recognised experts in trademark and patent law, trade/customs, M&A and dispute resolution.
We find solutions.  We partner with our clients so that we are able to provide the best advice possible.  We work as business consultants as well as lawyers, such that we can develop specialised legal solutions from a commercial perspective. 
We are passionate about our work. We are always learning and not afraid to take on new areas for our clients, or be creative in finding solutions.
We are fast. Our size and experience means that we are mobile, flexible and extremely quick in responding to issues and developing solutions. 
We keep costs low.  By having one main office in Beijing whilst working from serviced offices and virtually when circumstances allow in locations such as Brisbane, Guangzhou and Shanghai, and utilising electronic library and knowhow databases within our firm, we are able to pass on considerable costs savings to our clients whilst maintaining first class quality of our work. 
We are highly specialised in the areas of intellectual property and technology, international trade, M&A/corporate, antitrust and dispute resolutionWe win awards in these areas, but we are more interested in seeing our clients win awards for projects that we assist them with.
