I have over ten years of legal practice specialising in taxation, foreign investment, company compliance, human resources and intellectual property.

I am a tax specialist on all tax issues, including enterprise income tax, individual income tax and value added tax, etc. I have advised numerous international clients on tax issues, including a leading US non-profit applied research and development organization, one of the world’s largest commercial airplane assemblies and components suppliers, a US shipping classification organization, and a leading international oil and gas drilling, forestry, mining equipments manufacturer. 

I also advise international clients on establishing subsidiaries and representative offices in China. I also have experience on reorganisation of an international highway construction group with its FDI enterprises in China, and the acquisition of a Chinese company by a Fortune 500 group.

I advise clients across a wide range of industries such as energy, engineering machinery, medical equipment, and software. I have extensive knowledge of laws and regulations, administrative procedures, corporate documents and all types of contracts.

I participated in copyright enforcement work in China on behalf of a well-known US postgraduate education management organization, litigation against a Beijing company's copyright infringing activities resulting in a settlement (listed as one of the ten leading IP cases in Beijing in 2009). In addition, I have represented overseas clients in trademark registration and enforcement, inlcuding acting for a US youth development organization with regard to applications and registration of trademarks in China, Japan, South Korea, Philippines and Bangladesh.
