JunHe LLP

New York, NY, USA


Professional Experience

Alex is a partner at JunHe’s New York office. Alex has been practicing law in New York since 2003, and joined JunHe in 2011 after eight years at two leading U.S. law firms (White & Case; Vinson & Elkins).

Alex has significant experience in corporate, M&A, finance and FDI matters involving China. He also advises US clients on complying with China’s rapidly developing laws in areas such as anti-bribery, anti-monopoly, labor and employment, and national security. In addition, Alex acts as outside general counsel for many Chinese clients doing business in the U.S. (including some of China’s largest developers, banks and manufacturers) and links them with U.S. lawyers and other professionals.

Clients report that “Alex has superb instincts, utmost discretion, a keen judgment, a unique ability to de-mystify the complex, and a phenomenal ability to bring in all the expertise that is needed, but never more than what's needed.” Because “he's always exactly where you need him, when you need him” and “extremely creative and responsive”, clients “would recommend Alex in a heartbeat" and “just can't imagine doing anything legal in China without his counsel.”

Alex frequently speaks and writes on China-related legal and business issues, and has been interviewed by leading Chinese and U.S. media. He co-chairs Practising Law Institute’s annual seminar on Doing Business in and with Emerging Markets. Alex considers himself a European history buff and a linguistics fan, and finds ultimate relaxation in long-distance driving.
