Mr. Jesse Weiner has lived and worked in China for nearly ten years, and he has been matching the development of the film, television and entertainment industry between China and the United States, working with clients such as Hunan TV and director Zhang Yimou, and has made great contributions to the development of film, television and cultural entertainment between China and the United States. During the event, he also had a duel with Chinese chess masters to promote cultural exchange between China and the United States.

Afterwards, Wang Jin, former Vice President of Baidu Group, former Senior Vice President of American Express, and current Chairman and CEO of FinTell, shared his experience of starting his own business after leaving Baidu. Mr. Wang Jin emphasized that entrepreneurship requires the study of trends, and that startups can make great achievements if they can deeply plow into the fields with future development prospects.

Ms. Qi Men, who works in the New York office of YK LAW LLP, was a former teacher at New Oriental. Now she provides plenty of services for many Chinese companies in the education industry, such as business litigation, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, and IPO listing. She told her story of litigation and rights defense for Chinese startups.

In the process, she expressed her confidence in the U.S. judicial system and her expectation to do what her law firm and herself can do to avoid risks and clear the minefield for more entrepreneurs and companies.

Fresh attorney Weiyu Li discussed bankruptcy law, real estate law and immigration law, and shared the inseparable relationship between new immigrant life and the law.

On behalf of the organizers, Professor Xia Shanchen presented a commemorative banner to the New York office of YK LAW LLP through Jesse. Professor Xia started his career in business in his early years, then in politics, and then turned to law, business education and academic research, devoting himself to international business law in China and the United States. During the forum, Professor Xia commented and summarized each person’s speech, and prompted attendees to deepen the market of U.S.-China cooperation in the field of service trade from their respective professions and industries.

In addition, Mr. Lin Jiazhou, President of the American Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, participated in this forum as a special guest of Professor Xia Shanchen. President Lin has been in the U.S. for 38 years operating international trade. He is also a veteran entrepreneur who has committed to building a platform for cooperation between the U.S. and Chinese governments and enterprises. He recalled the changes in international trade as well as the business environment that he has personally experienced over the years, and hoped that entrepreneurs could organize themselves to deal with the risks brought by the rapidly changing US-China relations and political and economic policies.

Through the exchange and sharing at the Law and Enterprise Forum, we plan to build a forward-looking and executing service platform as soon as possible, and work together to make New York YK Law a strong backing for the cooperation of Chinese and American entrepreneurs and companies.
