I have extensive experience working with Chinese parties, including state-owned and privately owned enterprises – and their counterparties – in complex and difficult cross-border negotiations related to M&A, private equity, joint venture, foreign direct investment and other commercial transactions.

I have spent almost 10 years living in China, and am fluent in both spoken and reading Chinese (Mandarin) and English, which is valuable to clients in cross border matters involving Chinese parties.

  • Worked on numerous high-profile transactions involving non-Chinese parties investing in China’s automotive, aviation, consumer goods, real estate and retail sectors
  • Helped many Chinese and other parties around the world on transactions that involved Chinese investors entering sectors such as agribusiness, aviation, consumer goods, real estate, resources and retail
  • Regularly help non-Chinese parties with their Chinese investment strategies
  • Routinely work with Chinese parties on their strategies for investing in Australia, and with Australian parties seeking to invest in China
