Education concerns the vital interests of every resident, and has attracted growing attention from investors. The wave of overseas listing of private education institutions in the past decade makes the education sector a magnet for market capital. A host of laws, regulations and policies promulgated by China since 2016, represented by Law on the Promotion of Private Education, prompted the entire sector to re-adjust its structure and business orientation. Hylands’ team harnesses its expertise to provide comprehensive, efficient legal services for many private education and training institutions in China by virtue of its familiarity with the domestic education industry and the grasp of relevant laws and policies. Hylands’ team has participated in holding many domestic education-related forums and served as guest lecturers. The team gave lectures on the corporate governance of educational institutions, classification management response, equity design, capitalized operation, and IP protection of under the new law. At present, the team acts as the permanent legal counsel for many educational institutions and training agencies domestic & overseas.
