Since the enactment of the AML, Susan has undertaken more than 250 antitrust merger control filings on behalf of blue-chip clients, which consist mostly of multinational companies.

She has taken a very active role in assisting and advising the government on the AML legislation and its implementing rules, through which she has built and maintained a close working relationship with the antitrust authorities in China.

Both Susan and her antitrust team have received numerous awards and accolades for antitrust and competition work in China.
