The Chambers Greater China Guide Editorial Team

Dennis Li - Head of Research

Hello, My name is Dennis. As the Head of Greater China Region Research at Chambers, I supervise all four jurisdictions of this fast-growing region covering wide-ranging practice areas and sectors and have the honour to lead this dedicated department full of specialists with unparalleled experience researching the local legal markets.

I joined Chambers & Partners in 2013 as a research analyst and before long was promoted to Deputy Editor of the Asia-Pacific team, where I led the coverage of East Asia markets including China, the Korean peninsula and Japan. I later concentrated my research on the Greater China Region and helped to create this standalone guide. Prior to my time at Chambers, I studied and worked in China and England. I had a degree of German and English Studies at a prestigious university in China and later studied media/publishing at University College London before completing a Graduate Diploma in Law from BPP. I also worked extensively in some research, project management and editorial roles in both locations, and have a strong interest in market analytics and legal analysis.

My current role as the Head involves strategically growing the branding and ensuring the accuracy of our expanding coverage in the region. I regularly engage with marketing individuals, senior partners, general counsels and company executives to keep up with the current market trends. Should you have any questions or would like to discuss anything with me, please do feel free to get in touch via [email protected].

Beatrice Chan - Research Manager

I joined Chambers and Partners after graduating from the University of Bristol with an LLB Law degree and working in the sales and marketing industry for over one year. I started as a researcher on the Asia-Pacific team, before becoming an Assistant Editor and subsequently Research Manager.

My role as Research Manager involves managing a team of research analysts, who conduct in-depth interviews with solicitors, barristers, general counsels and other market sources, and working with the team to ensure the rankings and editorial content reflect the current market. I oversee the research for China International and assist with PRC research. In addition, I also oversee the Korean peninsula sections research.

I work with contacts at law firms and sets of chambers to discuss the work handled by their practitioners and their views on the markets. I speak Mandarin and Cantonese, and my internships and mini-pupillage experience in Hong Kong further aid my engagement with the law firms and chambers. Please do get in touch with any questions about the Greater China Region and Korea sections. I can be contacted at [email protected].
