Professional Experience

Mr. Du joined JunHe in 2001, working from the New York office.

Since joining JunHe, Mr. Du has successfully represented numerous multinational companies, many of which are Fortune 500 companies, in their China investments and operations in a variety of industries and services ranging from pharmaceuticals and biotech companies, auto parts, precision metal, new energy, data analytics, architectural design, entertainment, and cosmetics distribution. With assistance from his colleagues in JunHe’s China offices, Mr. Du has represented both US and Chinese clients in some highly difficult negotiations of M&A transactions as well as formations and separations of Sino-foreign joint ventures.

His successful representation of clients doing business in China has earned him special recognition, including Top Lawyer (M&A, China) nomination by AsiaLaw in 2011, and Leading Lawyer (Private Equity) nomination by IFLR 1000 in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and Leading Lawyer in Corporate/M&A by China Law and Practice in 2015. He is also a frequent speaker at such venues as PLI and ABA on legal issues relating to doing business in China.

In recent years, Mr. Du has also represented some blue chip Chinese companies in their expansion into the US market and has often acted as their outside general counsel on a variety of assignments, ranging from initial corporate setup to M&A and private investment. Along with other US bankruptcy lawyers, he has co-represented Chinese investors participating in US bankruptcy proceedings including 363 sales.
