R&P Welcomes Three High-Profile Lawyers

13 July 2020

We are extremely pleased to announce that three seasoned, high-profile lawyers have recently joined R&P. Ms. Peng Qiao, Ms. Annabella Fu and Mr. Art Dicker have each built distinguished practices, and so we are very proud that they have selected R&P as the next step in their careers. 

Ms. Alice Peng (Peng Qiao) is a specialist in compliance, white-collar crime, and litigation. 

Alice started her career as a prosecutor in Guangdong Province, worked for leading Chinese law firms King & Wood (now KWM) and Junhe Law Offices, and then for global law firm Simmons & Simmons. She just completed 5 years at pharma giant Astra Zeneca as their Global Compliance Director. Her experience and expertise will strengthen R&P’s existing service offerings to multinationals in the areas of internal and external investigations, building compliance systems, dealing with corporate crimes, and litigation in China. 

Ms. Annabella Fu focuses on financial and regulatory matters in the Chinese Mainland and Hong Kong.

Annabella joins from Magic-Circle law firm Linklaters, where she was a partner based out of Beijing and Hong Kong. At R&P she will use her wealth of knowledge to support financial institutions and other multinationals on regulatory matters, M&A projects, and Joint Ventures. Dual-qualified in Hong Kong and England, her joining will also expand on R&P’s capabilities to support clients for Hong Kong-related matters, including in relation to general corporate, M&A and regulatory.

Mr. Art Dicker specializes in M&A and corporate matters for US multinationals.

Art moved to China in 2007, was an attorney at US law firm Morrison & Foerster, and was Asia Pacific General Counsel for Nasdaq-listed Cadence Design Systems. Art has a JD from George Washington University and an MBA from the University of Southern California, and hosts a popular podcast discussing Chinese legal topics with legal counsels of Fortune 500 companies in China. With his experience as a US lawyer and dealing with American technology, manufacturing and consumer goods companies that operate in China, R&P will be better able to serve US investments into China through greenfield projects and acquisitions.
