Thomas Yunlong Man is moving from Orrick to Morrison & Foerster in Beijing.
Man regularly counsels Chinese and international clients on corporate matters that include mergers & acquisitions, private equity, corporate strategy, anti-monopoly law, and investigations – particularly concerning potential violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).
“Lawyers with PRC backgrounds and U.S. practice experience are highly valued in China and still something of a rarity,” said Paul D. McKenzie, managing partner of Morrison & Foerster’s Beijing office. “Thomas is bilingual and bicultural, and works with equal ease with Chinese, U.S. and European clients. Importantly, he has handled large transactions across China’s business landscape, including many involving government ownership. He will be a tremendous asset to our clients.”
“I am delighted to join Morrison & Foerster,” said Man, “MoFo’s China practice is well-established, sophisticated, and highly accomplished in many areas relevant to my work, particularly cross-border M&A and antitrust matters. I can’t think of a better place to advance my practice.”
Man received his J.D. from Indiana University School of Law – Bloomington.
He also holds a Masters in Western History from Peking University and a Ph.D. in U.S. constitutional history from Johns Hopkins University.
He received a Bachelor’s degree in History from Shandong Normal University.
Man joins the approximately 70 legal professionals in Morrison & Foerster’s three China offices.
Morrison & Foerster was among the first U.S. law firms to establish an office or become locally qualified to practice in each of China’s major business centers, Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.
