What do you mean by the legal representative of a Chinese company?
When dealing with Chinese companies, it is important to understand the role of the legal representative of Chinese companies and find out who holds the position in your business.
This article will tell you how to find out the name of the legal representative of a Chinese company, but before we start, we must find out exactly what the responsibilities of the legal representative of a Chinese company are.
What is the legal representative of a Chinese company?
After seeing the name listed on the "legal representative" on the Chinese business license, many people thought it was the most important person in the company, such as the chief executive officer.
However, this is not usually the case. The legal representative of a Chinese company may be any person of the company. They were chosen to put their names on their business licenses and agreed to the arrangement.
Reasons for this selection may include:
l This is a person who is obedient and loyal to the company, and will not cause any problems due to becoming a legal representative.
l In the long run, this is a stable person and it is unlikely to leave.
l It is trustworthy that you can assume the responsibility of the legal representative without causing any problems.
l It's a lawyer for the company.
In any case, it is likely that this person will not become a real authority in the management of the company.
Therefore, it may be wrong to ask for contact with legal representatives or for them to participate in your communication with the company.
In many cases, this person's role as legal representative has no direct relationship with the company's management, and it is completely legal not to participate in your business relationship at all.
