Understanding China's Extraterritorial Attempt to Expand the Veil Piercing Doctrine: Domestic and International Perspectives

Start/End Wednesday, November 06, 2013 12:10 PM EST -- 01:10 PM EST
Location Name JG 602

Prof. Shen Wei will discuss one way of expanding the veil-piercing doctrine. Specifically, he'll speak about Chinese tax authority's administrative rules granting itself the authority to tax transactions between foreign entities occurring outside of China. He's especially interested if the transactions effectively involve transfers of equity interest in an enterprise incorporated in China. Prof. Shen is the Special Oriental Scholar Professor of Law, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Law School. Sponsored by the Center for Chinese Legal Studies and the Society for Chinese Law.
