Winston & Strawn LLP has expanded its transactional capabilities in China with a three-person team from Cadwalader. Joining the firm are corporate and M&A attorney Jem Li, who will be managing partner of Winston & Strawn’s Beijing office, and corporate associates Haihang (Helen) Zhang and Na (April) Wang.
Li has practiced at international law firms for more than a decade in New York as well as mainland China. Speaking native Chinese and fluent in English, Li’s experience includes complex cross-border commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, private equity investment, venture capital investment, and foreign direct investment in China. He has practiced in China since 2004.
“We’re delighted that Jem has joined our Beijing office because he gives additional quality and breadth,” said Thomas Fitzgerald, Winston & Strawn’s managing partner. “China clearly plays an important role to our strategic vision of expanding the firm’s footprint in Asia and we are excited about the opportunity to provide even stronger service to our clients there.”
Li obtained his M.I.A. from Columbia University, and his J.D. from Pace University.
