We are an independent consultancy providing specialist advice on international business issues, in areas covering trade, investment, partnering and other forms of cooperation.

We ensure that a senior consultant leads and works on your business, maintaining their close day-to-day involvement (not delegating to junior staff).

We have a unique blend of commercial and public-sector experience at senior levels, particularly in China and the UK. Neil Blakeman and most of our Associates have lived, worked and travelled extensively in China and other countries, operating in a diverse range of environments.

Our knowledge and skills are combined with an exceptional network of contacts within the commercial world, government, and higher education.
