I am very excited to join McMillan as an articled student. In the last few years, I had the opportunity to interact with McMillan while assisting my Chinese clients with their legal matters in Canada. In addition to its high-caliber legal service and sincere implementation of a “client first” policy, the firm impressed me with its keen appreciation of clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. 

Prior to joining the firm, I practiced under Chinese law for over 20 years, focusing on international litigation and arbitration. In the second ten years, I worked primarily as a consultant for Chinese clients seeking legal services in Canada. I have a Bachelor of Law degree from Xiamen University (China), a Master of Law degree from the University of London (UK), and a Master of Law degree from the University of British Columbia. In 2018, I was selected by the All China Lawyers Association (“ACLA”) as one of the twenty leading lawyers from China to attend a training program held in the United States co-sponsored by ACLA and the United States International Law Institute. The education background of both civil law and common law coupled with my working experience in Canada and China has made me a bilingual in the sense of legal systems, as well as the languages.

Outside of work I enjoy cooking, playing piano and guitar, and travelling with family or friends. Swimming and yoga are my favourite sports.
