Education and Experience:

During study in Dalian Maritime University from 1985 to 1989, traditional maritime bachelor courses was received such as Navigation, Stowage, Engineering, Shipping Law, Marine Insurance and On-ship training; Then graduating with a Bachelor degree, I was employed by the DAA, CCPIT as a cadet, assistant adjuster finally promoted as an adjuster.

In the year of 1999, following a reorganization of PICC, the People’s Insurance Company of China, my team had been changed as RICC & Co. which is quickly cut off as an independent new firm from the Huatai Agency, and then reformed as a leading law firm dealing marine and insurance and then other commercial disputes in China. In 2007, I was invited by Huatai Property & Casualty Insurance Company to supervise its claim team, but due to a private reason I quit sho1ily the next year.
