Dodge Zhong Partners, (hereinafter, DZP) was formed by Mr. David A. Dodge, Esq. and his legal research assistant, Ms. Linda Zhong, Esq. and has grown to bring in talented professionals across a broad spectrum of practice areas crucial to its purpose.

Mr. Dodge began exploring the relationship between the U.S. and China shortly after China joined the WTO back in 2001. China’s joining the WTO increased business opportunities between two economically diverse nations, the U.S. and China and between many other key global economic players. Competent legal services for complex international business transactions between the two countries grew substantially at that time and that need continues to grow. DZP was formed specifically to meet such demand. DZP is headquartered in Orange County, CA with offices in Shenzhen, China.
