Hi, I am Chambers Yang, a lawyer in Shanghai, China.
My Chinese name is YANG, Chunbao. I was born in Huai'an , Jiangsu province, which is
China former premier Chow En-lai's home town. In 1988, I was recommended
for admission to Fudan University ,
one of the top universities in China. From then on, I left my home town
and became a law student in Fudan University.
In 1992, I got my Bachelor of Laws degree with a highest honor granted
by the High Education Bureau of Shanghai and began to work for a state-owned
company as a house counselor. I passed Bar Examination in 1993 and then
left the company and joined in Zhongjian Law
Firm , one of the leading law firms in Shanghai. In early 2001,
I set up Haworth & Lexon
with several friends.
As a lawyer, I was granted the 'Qualification of Securities Lawyer'
by Department of
Justice of P.R.C. and China Securities Regulatory
Commission, and the 'Qualification of Enterprise Registration Agent'
by State Administration For Industry
and Commerce .
I got Master of Laws degree from University
of Technology, Sydney and Juris Master degree from East China Politics
and Law Institute in 2001. It is an interesting and valuable experience
to study completely different laws in both common law country and civil
law country. It contributes much to my professional service to both
foreign investors and domestic clients.
