Who's Who Legal Competition: Lawyers

John Yong Ren is the founder and managing partner of T&D Associates based in Beijing, China.

John started his career as a certified lawyer in 1988. In 2003, he founded the first and biggest antitrust group in China. Led by him, the team has been assisting clients on all aspects of the AML with expertise in a broad range of antitrust issues, including merger control, cartels, abuses, etc. With experiences of participation in the legislation of the AML and related administrative rules as well as a good working relationship with three AML enforcement authorities, he successfully represented multinationals in more than 300 merger notifications (including the recent Dow/DuPont, Qualcomm/NXP and AT&T/Time Warner with MOFCOM, etc) and dozens of antitrust investigations (including the recent Tetra Pak case with SAIC and most cartel and abusive cases involving multinationals with NDRC) in China since 2008.

T&D Associates has been recognised by Chambers as the PRC competition/antitrust law firm of the year eight times (2010–2017).

John is also keen to promote the development of the AML. Since 2005, John has co-hosted a total 27 AML symposia with the Competition Law Centre of UIBE, with participants including senior officials from MOFCOM, NDRC, SAIC, DOJ, FTC, EU DG Comp, JFTC; top antitrust scholars and experts; in-house counsels of multinationals, etc. Additionally, he translated Antitrust Law and Economics, written by Professor William Kovacic, into Chinese.

John also serves as an arbitrator in the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, and as a panel member in the antitrust committee of the Beijing Lawyers Association.

WWL says: With nearly 30 years’ experience, John Yong Ren is a well-reputed “go-to lawyer” on Chinese competition law.
