Headed by the firm’s founder and chairman Peng Xuefeng, its new management structure is made up of a 17-member standing committee, a five-member supervising committee and an executive committee. The structure replaces Dacheng’s previous 15-member management committee.

Many leading firms in China have started thinking seriously about their future and how to sustain their success and position in the generations to come. Corporate structures are becoming common. Jun He, best known in the West for being Slaughter and May’s best friend, and DeHeng both made the transition from iconic founder to new generation last year.

This week, our China blogger Robert Lewis also shares his insights into the different management stylesat four Chinese firms.

It isn’t just the Chinese firms that are making top-level changes to accommodate growth across the Asia Pacific. Last week, UK firm Holman Fenwick Willan became the first international firm to relocate its senior partner to Asia on a permanent basis.

Now that shows a commitment to Asia on a different level.
