Lin & Partners, a leading Taiwan law firm to global corporations, financial institutions, and government agencies, announced today that Taipei City’s Urban Regeneration Office has appointed Lin & Partners as its exclusive external counsel for a review of laws and regulations that govern urban renewal projects.

Lin & Partners was selected following a competitive process among leading Taiwan law firms. Managing Partner George Lin will lead the engagement.

The URO is tasked with carrying out urban renewal and development research, drafting urban redevelopment policies and laws and urban redevelopment plans, designating urban redevelopment areas, managing redevelopment funds, taking charge of business management and financial analysis of redeveloped real estate, budget control, managing subsidy programs, and the drafting, review, approval, coordination, supervision, and management of reconstruction, renovations, and other urban renewal tasks.

As part of this engagement, Lin & Partners will analyze overseas urban renewal legal processes in the world’s largest cities and recommend to the URO revisions to relevant laws and regulations at the municipal and if necessary, central government level.

“We are honored that the URO has appointed Lin & Partners for this important project. Taipei City competes against neighboring capitals to be a destination of choice for business and tourism, and urban renewal is an important component of this. We look forward to contributing the skills and experience of our infrastructure and government relations teams to make this project a success,” said managing partner George Lin.
