What do you focus on?

I started my practice on the entertainment industry almost 23 years ago. At present, I focus my practice more on the film, music and TV industry.

What do you see on the horizon?

The media and entertainment business, especially the film industry in PRC, is expanding at a tremendous speed and scale. Foreign companies are looking for opportunities to cooperate with PRC companies, while PRC companies are looking for acquisitions in foreign companies. The synergy is exploding, and I believe this represents more opportunities for lawyers specialized in this area.
