I am a partner in our Corporate Group in Beijing where I specialise in cross-border M&A, corporate and commercial matters, and foreign direct investment.
With over ten years practical experience working in Australia as well as over ten years practice in China, I have gained in-depth expertise in cross-border transactions, both inbound and outbound.
I understand clients' needs, and I can help clients to communicate effectively regarding their commercial goals and concerns, legal or otherwise to help them achieve the optimal results.
I have substantial experience in managing English-Chinese documentation and assisting clients on bilingual negotiations in complex legal and commercial context.
In recent years, I have advised many high profile Chinese companies on their investments in markets such as Australia, Fiji, Vietnam, Russia, Ukraine, Egypt, Spain, Germany, the US and the UK, in sectors including mining, manufacturing, infrastructure, energy and agriculture. My outbound work involves private M&A, public takeovers, project development including joint ventures, advisory work, and commercial arrangements including supply and distribution.
I also have substantial experience in representing foreign investors on their investments in China, and have advised many multinationals on matters including joint ventures, regulatory issues and compliance.
