Originally from China, Steven first came to Australia in 1997. He graduated from the University of Queensland and the University of Sydney with Bachelor degrees in Science and Law.

He began his career as an associate to D.F Rofe QC at 12th Floor Wentworth Chambers in 2004, and was admitted to practice as a lawyer in 2007. He worked in a national firm prior to joining Inmark Group, a property development and asset management company, where he worked as an associate director and legal counsel.

After successfully managing a large scale, multi-award winning mix-use development in the Sydney CBD for Inmark Group, Steven returned to China in 2013 to take on a senior executive position for a Chinese State Owned Enterprise specialising in city construction. He was responsible for overseeing and managing the day to day business for the entity in Shandong Province.

Steven returned to Australia in 2017 and continued his career in the legal profession with a better and more in-depth understanding of the corporate culture and practical commercial experience in conducting cross border transactions. Steven’s multi-disciplinary experience will no doubt add value to his advice to Asian corporate clients operating in Australia.

Steven is fluent in English and Mandarin.
