China Law, Chinese Lawyer

Law Bridge



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.
