As a legal manager in our Intellectual Property team at Bird & Bird in Hong Kong, I regularly advise clients on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious intellectual property matters.

My practice is focused on intellectual property law. I have gained valuable experience in managing complex IP litigation projects in China and across Asia for international technologies companies. I have also been involved in various IP advisory matters, including providing advice on enforcement, protection and commercialisation of IP rights in China for clients in a diverse range of sectors such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, retail & consumer.

I grew up and received my legal education in mainland China, I further pursued my Master of Common Law degree in Hong Kong and have been working in Hong Kong as a legal professional for years. With exposures to the unique combination of east and western cultures, I have been provided with numerous opportunities to develop professional expertise to solve complex legal problems and manage legal risks for international clients and meet the continuous challenges and developments of China in the intellectual property law area. This experience enables me to effectively interact with clients, tailor advice to meet their needs while also providing useful insights into the legal environment in China.

I have closely followed the legal and regulatory changes and developments on IP/tech-heavy business and contributed to legal publications.
