Mu Fei, a senior partner at Hylands Law Firm, is particularly expert in arbitration and litigation cases relating to banking and finance, asset management, investment and financing disputes, and disputes over control of companies. In recent years, she has been awarded The A-List Elite 100 Lawyers of China Business Law Journal; the LEGALBAND Power List: Top 15 Arbitration Lawyers; and other awards in legal services ratings.
An arbitration expert in the field of financial disputes, Mu’s outstanding ability is due to her experience as a former judge in the Beijing Intermediate People’s Court. It has become a subconscious ability for her to catch the main points of a case, while a judge’s neutral and equitable mindset has developed her habit of considering the whole picture. Therefore, she always provides her clients with a sound analysis of the risks of litigation, accurate predictions of case trends, and a path to resolution of difficult issues.
At Hylands, Mu plays an important role in internal governance and business pioneering. Internally, she heads the Partner Development Committee, and is highly respected for her experience in attracting excellent partners to the firm, and for her commitment to helping internal partners to develop their careers.
Externally, she is the lead partner of the Asset Management Industry Committee, a new department of more than 200 lawyers formed in response to the trend of cross-sector regulation of asset management. Moreover, Mu leads the development of this team throughout the process of team formation, specialisation, platform building and resource planning.
