Zhaofeng Zhou, Managing Partner - Beijing

Zhaofeng Zhou, Managing Partner - Beijing, Fieldfisher

English

I am the Managing Partner in Beijing.

As a leading expert in Chinese competition law, I started to practice in late 2007, before the Chinese Antimonopoly Law came into effect. I advise on all aspects of Chinese competition law including merger control, cartel investigations, abuse of dominance, anti-competitive agreements, antitrust compliance training and antitrust litigation.

I have advised major international and domestic companies in sectors such as aviation, aircraft manufacturing, automotive, e-commerce, internet industry, mining equipment, new energy, pharmaceuticals and TMT.

I am one of the handful of Chinese competition/antitrust lawyers to have both a strong academic background and rich experience in antitrust legal practice. As one of the pioneers in this field in China, I worked on several landmark cases in its legal development, such as the first notification in the aviation industry, the first notification of an R&D joint venture, and the first post-divestiture case in China.

My professional and trade memberships include the Chinese Lawyers Association and the Beijing Lawyers Association. Between 2014 and 2016, I was elected as the vice chair of the Legal and Competition Group of the European Chamber of Commerce in China.

I have spoken at many conferences and events, and written many articles on Chinese competition law.

I have a PhD degree in competition law from the University of Glasgow and an LLM degree in international law from the University of Bristol.

In my spare time I enjoy reading and joggling. My mother tongue is Chinese and I am also fluent in English.

我是斐石律师事务所中国区管理合伙人。

我是中国反垄断法方面的专家。我早在反垄断法生效前就开始从事反垄断法方面的实务。我的领域覆盖中国反垄断法的所有方面,包括经营者集中反垄断申报、卡特尔调查、滥用市场支配地位、垄断协议审查、反垄断合规培训和反垄断诉讼。

我为众多国内外企业提供过中国反垄断法服务,所涉及的领域涵盖了多个行业,其中包括航空、飞机制造、汽车、电子商务、互联网、矿用机器制造、新能源、医药和TMT等领域。

我是中国为数极少的即具有深厚反垄断法理论基础又具有丰富实践经验的反垄断法律师。作为最早从事中国反垄断法研究和实务的中国律师之一,我曾经参与过多起在中国反垄断法发展史上具有里程碑意义的反垄断项目,例如商务部受理的第一起航空领域的经营者集中反垄断申报,自反垄断法生效以来商务部受理的第一个研发型的经营者集中反垄断申报和中国反垄断法实施后的第一起收购被剥离资产的项目。

我是中华律师协会和北京律师协会的会员。2014年至2016年,我连续三年当选为欧盟商会法律与竞争工作组的副主席。

我多次就中国的反垄断法发表演讲和发表文章。

我拥有英国格拉斯哥大学的反垄断法博士和英国布里斯托大学的国际法硕士。

我业余时间喜欢阅读和慢跑。

中文是我的母语。我的英文也流利。
