More M&As, bankruptcies and IPOs will boost share of civil legal services

Revenue for Attorneys in China grew at an annualized rate of 10.8% over the past five years to an estimated $7.1 billion in 2012, says IBISWorld. China’s developing economy and increasing business and M&A activity have supported the industry’s growth, particularly growth in demand for civil legal services.

Most law firms are located in China's major cities, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, where many client businesses are active and large corporate clients are headquartered. Large Chinese law firms are expanding their international business through partnerships with foreign law firms. Some have established offices in foreign countries.

Market share concentration within the Attorneys industry in China is low. The combined market share of the top four players – King & Wood PRC Lawyers, Dacheng Law Offices, Grandall Legal Group, and Jun He Law Offices – was estimated at 10.0% in 2012. This reflects the large number of small firms operating within the industry. However, the industry concentration level has shown an increasing trend in recent years, reflecting the business expansion of large players.

IBISWorld forecasts that the industry will continue to grow in line with China’s economic development, with non-litigious legal services, including services for mergers and acquisitions, bankruptcies and initial public offerings (IPOs), growing as important revenue drivers.
