National Leader

WWL Ranking: Recommended

WWL says

Honghuan Liu attracts widespread praise for her superb work on complex product liability-related disputes and arbitrations.


Ms Liu heads the dispute resolution group of FenXun Partners in Beijing, and is an arbitrator at the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission. Before becoming a lawyer, Ms Liu worked in the commercial litigation division of the Beijing Higher Court to supervise and guide the cases appealed from lower courts within its jurisdiction.  

During more than 20 years of practice, Ms Liu has been litigation counsel for many multinational companies. She is good at handling complex commercial litigation and arbitration, especially technology-related product liability, trade secrets, patents, standard essential patent portfolio royalty disputes and related anti-monopoly litigation, and other infringement or cross-border disputes related to case strategies and procedures, settlement negotiation, and also public relations crisis for multinational companies in China.

Ms Liu is good at clarifying the core and hierarchical interests of clients in complex and influential cases involving multiple procedures, battlefields and cross-jurisdictional areas. She has unique insight into the differences between, and coordination among, various legal battlefields, and can accordingly determine the best action plan to be executed in China.

With her excellent logical ability, imagination and creativity, Ms Liu can quickly break into any cutting-edge technology field.

China has not yet formed a fact discovery system; against this background, Ms Liu is good at finding any possible clues, quickly tracing back the core facts, and establishing the evidence. She is also the first lawyer to use expert witnesses in the courts of mainland China. Many of Ms Liu’s lawsuits – covering such matters as trade secrets, product liability, trademarks, and other complicated and frontier cases – have become guiding cases for the Chinese courts to deal with such disputes.

Thanks to her outstanding ability in fact-finding and court defence, none of the product liability litigation cases Ms Liu has handled for Japanese, German and American automobile manufacturers have ever resulted in a finding of a defective product.

Ms Liu graduated from China University of Political Science and Law in 1986 with an LLB degree.

FenXun Partners established a joint operation office with Baker McKenzie in April 2015. The Baker McKenzie FenXun (FTZ) joint operation is the world’s leading Chinese legal platform, delivering integrated international and PRC legal services. The joint operation is staffed by both locally admitted and foreign-licensed lawyers from Baker McKenzie and FenXun Partners, advising leading Chinese and multinational companies on China-related domestic and cross-border issues across the full spectrum of corporate and commercial law.
