Introduction
LCS & Partners ("LCS") is an elite corporate law firm based in Taipei. Since the firms inception in 1998, it has grown rapidly to approximately70 legal professionals and gained a reputation as one of the top corporate law firms in Taiwan. It regularly handles major cases for top-tier domestic and international clients. As a testament of LCS' success, it  has consistently been ranked among the top M&A firms by Bloomberg and others since 2000.

LCS distinguishes itself from other traditional Taiwan law firms in its ability to handle complex international legal matters. Most of the legal professionals at LCS'  have received LL.M., J.D. and/or S.J.D. degrees from law schools in the United States. LCS is a member of the World Services Group. The World Services Group is a global membership association of law firms and other professionals. There are more than 130 member firms from  more than 115 countries and throughout the United States.
Services
LCS provides a full range of legal services in every major corporate practice area. The main areas of expertise include mergers and acquisitions; cross-border investments (including China practice); capital markets; structured finance/securitization projects; intellectual property; insurance and reinsurance; employment; private equity fund formations; BOT projects; banking; high-tech representation (including technology transfers and licensing); antitrust; tax structuring and compliance; NPLs and sale of distressed assets; and commercial litigation and arbitration. The firm's attorneys are experienced in local compliance matters, including liaising with Taiwan's Financial Supervisory Commission, the Fair Trade Commission and other regulatory authorities.
Social Commitments

In July 2000, LCS set up a permanent civilian legal clinic to provide free legal consultation service to disadvantaged minority groups, such as children, women, aborigines and low income households. The firm's attorneys provide telephone consultation or conduct face-to-face interviews for each case, and to date free legal service for several hundred cases has been provided. In order to fundamentally educate disadvantaged minority groups who lack the financial ability to obtain legal resources and knowledge, the firm's attorneys have collected major issues encountered by many of the disadvantaged minority groups and published them in a special section on Law and Life on the firm's website.

In 2003, the firm set up the LCS & Partners Legal Thesis Award to encourage legal thesis writing by law students by granting scholarship awards and providing internship opportunities. The firm also sponsors and hosts various series of lectures and hosts debate competitions at several distinguished law schools and university law departments. In 2008 the firm established the LCS Scholarship which is awarded annually to a number of disadvantaged students to seek advanced education.
