Prior to joining Bonnard Lawson Shanghai as a partner, he was an associate at a leading US law firm in Singapore and Zurich as well as a senior consultant and senior auditor at Deloitte Geneva. Roger focuses his practice primarily on market entry advice, foreign investment into China, Chinese outward investment, international business structuring, inbound and outbound M&A, PE and VC, cross-border restructurings and insolvencies. With his interdisciplinary background and the substantial experience he has gained in Asia and Europe, Roger has been involved in a number of complex and high-profile distressed transactions and turnarounds.
