Henning von Zanthier has been a speaker at LAWASIA’s annual conferences since 2006: in Hohhot (China), Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), New Delhi (India) and Seoul (South Korea).

LAWASIA’s main objective is to support professional and business relations between lawyers, businesses and government representatives in the Asia Pacific region.
Since 2006 we have assisted a very substantial amount of investment and trade from companies in the LAWASIA region in and with Germany and Poland in what is an exponentially growing field of business. Our representation of Knits Deutschland GmbH, a subsidiary of the Hong Kong Afasia Group, before the European Court of Justice in 2009- 2011 excited widespread interest in legal journals.
