China’s Jun He has recruited two new partners in its Beijing and Shanghai offices.

Capital markets partner Shelly Sun joins the firm in Beijing. Sun was most recently general counsel of New York Stock Exchange-listed Yirendai, a Beijing-based online peer-to-peer financial service company. She worked on the company’s U.S. listing and related matters, including pre-IPO private placement, the initial public offering in November last year and post-IPO regulatory compliance issues.

Sun joined Yirendai earlier in 2015 from King & Wood Mallesons, where she had been an associate for five years. Before that, she practiced at Nixon Peabody and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, after receiving an LL.M. from Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago. She started her career at Jun He in 2004.

Trade disputes partner David Tang joins the firm’s office in Shanghai. Tang specializes in international trade disputes, having represented Chinese companies in anti-dumping and Section 337 intellectual property claims before the U.S. International Trade Commission. He also advises multinational companies on Chinese regulatory and compliance work.

Tang joined Jun He from Shanghai-based trade boutique Huang Shan & Co, where he had been a partner since 2004 when a group of trade lawyers led by partner Huang Shan left Zhong Lun Law Firm to start their own practice. He was seconded to Steptoe & Johnson briefly in 2005. Before joining Zhong Lun, the team, including Tang, practiced at Hong Kong firm Deacons.

Tang’s hire follows Jun He’s loss of former international trade partner Ruixue Ran —one of the top Chinese lawyers specializing in Section 337 investigations—to Covington & Burling earlier last year.

Beijing-based Jun He has about 400 lawyers in nine offices, including two U.S. outposts in New York and Palo Alto.
