Fan – who worked at Ant Group, Fangda Partners and Llinks Law Offices for more than 10 years – specialises in IPOs and refinancing, M&A, restructuring and PE/VC in domestic and international securities markets. He had acted for WuXi AppTec’s A-share IPO and US privatisation of WuXi AppTec, and provided investment advisory services to Alibaba, Ant Group, Sequoia Capital and Fortune Venture Capital.
In recent years, Fan has specialised in the areas of corporate governance and ESG. He assisted companies in building modern corporate governance structures, as well as designing and implementing ESG strategies, ratings and disclosures.
