Biography • Competition - Lawyers

Susan joined King & Wood Mallesons in 1995. She is a senior partner and the head of the international trade, antitrust & competition group. She is one of the first legal practitioners in China to set up an antitrust and competition specialist division.

Susan's current practice focuses on three main areas: securing MOFCOM merger clearance for clients; advising on AML compliance issues; and antitrust litigation. Since the enactment of the AML, Susan has undertaken over 100 antitrust merger control filings on behalf of blue-chip clients, which consist mostly of multinational companies. Susan is also assisting a number of clients on confidential investigations of cartel conduct, and is acting for Qihoo in relation to the landmark abuse of dominance case with Tencent.

Susan took a very active role in terms of assisting and counselling with the Chinese government on the enactment of the AML, and on drafting regulations and guidelines accompanying the AML. Through these consultations (and through her prior work with the Chinese government on WTO issues), Susan has built and maintained a close working relationship with the antitrust authorities in China.

She currently serves as the deputy chairman of the antitrust committee of the All China Lawyers Association and is an active participant of the American Bar Association's antitrust forum.

Susan holds a Bachelor of Laws from Peking University and a Masters in Law from McGill University. Susan was admitted as a Chinese lawyer in 1988.
