Fang articled with McMillan in 2018 and is now a practicing lawyer and a strategic advisor in the China Practice Group. Prior to joining the firm, Fang practiced Chinese law for over 20 years, focusing on international litigation and arbitration. In the later years, Fang worked primarily as a consultant for Chinese clients seeking legal services in Canada.
