I am a member of our Corporate & Commercial Group based in Shanghai with a sector focus on automotive and aviation as well as the general manufacturing industry. My practice covers commercial, regulatory and transactional issues for foreign investment in China.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2016 and started out in the commercial team working for automotive clients on various matters such as contract reviews, supply chain and quality disputes, regulatory compliance and transactional projects.

I have been involved in, and gained a broader range of experience, advising clients in different sectors such as aviation, media & sports and technology, where I can extend my interest in the supply chain study to the consumer or end-user level and the controversial issues in manufacturing digitalisation and AI.
