Can foreigners win in a Chinese court?

To win in court is never an easy thing, that’s why we have lawyers, but it’s definitely possible to win in a Chinese court, as long as you provide convincing evidence and follow necessary procedure. The reason why people think litigation is highly difficult in China is because of communication problem, besides, Chinese legal system is totally different with the one they are familiar with.  So find local English –speaking lawyer is very important.

    Is this it? No analysis, no facts, just a blurb that winning is possible?
    Next time you write an ‘article’ please take the time to actually write one or do not even bother. Two long sentences are not an article. Be professional.
