Xiaofang was born and grew up in Henan province, China – the birthplace of Chinese civilization with over 3,000 years of recorded history, and now a booming logistics hub of China. In 2007, she graduated with a bachelor’s law degree from the China University of Political Science and Law, Beijing, the largest institution in the World for legal education, and widely regarded as one of the top two law schools in China.

She came to the UK in 2008 and completed an LLM in International Commercial Law at the University of Edinburgh. Following her graduation she was asked to join the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry in order to help establish the Chinese Business Association (CBA) there. The CBA provides a voice for the Chinese business community and represents their views to the media, and local and central government; it also provides Chinese-origin businesses and investors with access to opportunities in London and the UK.

As Executive of the CBA, Xiaofang received over 400 Chinese businesses and various Chinese delegations in London. She liaised with the CBA’s four Founding Partners (China Telecom, HSBC, Jones Lang Lasalle and KPMG) and worked closely with the then Chairman of the CBA, Mr Ou Yan (also the Managing Director of China Telecom in Europe). Xiaofang acted as the bridge between Chinese and London businesses and gained the reputation of quickly understanding what Chinese businesses and investors want.

Now, as part of LCN Legal, she co-ordinates the operations and guides overall strategy, creative marketing for LCN. One of her main focus is to maintain and expand LCN’s presence in the International Transfer Pricing community.
