I am looking for a comprehensive guide of formal Chinese for business emails, memos, laws, newspapers, etc. I am aware that some sentence patterns are only used in a formal context. For example, ....均.. is used in a formal sense to mean "entire," but is rarely used in casual Chinese. I am also aware of the complex honorifics involved with business meetings such as 貴公司 etc. However, I can't seem to find any books that dive deep into the topic.

Here there a lot of resources you can look: Resources for learning Mandarin Chinese
In particular, for business they recommend:
- Business Chinese Learning Facebook Group There are a lot of posts about business Chinese vocabulary, job interview phrase, Chinese business culture and etiquette.
- 新思路 (Business Chinese) series textbook
Moreover, searching online I came across the following books you could check:
Advanced Chinese through Business Topics, Listening and Oral Expression: Discussing Everything Chinese, Part 3 by Dr. Lili Teng Foti, Rongzhen Li, Dr. Jie Liu, Dr. Wen-Hua Du
Here they also provide more recommendations: Recommended Business Chinese Textbooks For Different Levels from digmandarin.com
Finally, I imagine working on improving your level of Chinese in general could also help you in formal situations.
