  • David Charles Burgess

    I consider Allan a “go-to” resource for American companies doing or seeking to do business in China, Taiwan, or Hong Kong. He is fluent in Mandarin and has many years of high-level experience in the area, including periods living and working in Asia. He is disciplined, focused, and poised and can be counted on for quick, effective solutions at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend him.

    If you plan to do business in China, you need to talk to Allan first. His experience practicing law in both China and the US makes him an excellent resource.
