This year, our firm Dezan Shira & Associates, turns 25 years old in Asia. We retain extremely strong ties to the United Kingdom, with both our Chairman and Founding Partner, Chris Devonshire-Ellis, and Partner, Adam Livermore, being British nationals. The firm employs numerous British nationals throughout Asia, and has serviced several hundred British companies in China and the Asian region at large since 1992. We have grown over the past quarter century to have over 20 offices and several hundred staff across China, ASEAN and India in all major cities throughout the region. Of the total foreign investment we have facilitated over the years into China, a significant and valuable proportion - some £475 million - has been from British businesses, making Dezan Shira & Associates a long term, proven, and trusted conduit for British investment.
