38, partner at Zhao Sheng Law Firm (joint operation with Linklaters) in Shanghai and Beijing I have been practising competition law since the China anti-monopoly law took effect in 2009. I was a corporate M&A lawyer when China introduced its anti-monopoly law. I was fortunate enough to get involved in some major merger control cases at the very early stages of competition enforcement in China. I became interested in this rapidly evolving practice area because it brings together innovative and challenging issues from the different perspectives of law, economics and industrial policy.
