Haifeng joins the Firm from China National Agrochemical Corp ("CNAC")., where he was Chief Legal Officer (General Counsel). He was responsible for overseeing the legal and compliance work of the company and its subsidiaries located in over 15 countries, including managing the team on CNAC's US$43 billion acquisition of Syngenta AG.
