Biography

With over two decades of experience spanning top law firms and a Chinese regulator, Jie is a highly regarded figure in the market and is consistently ranked among the top lawyers in China. Jie’s primary areas of practice are competition, PE/VC, national security, compliance, and general corporate & commercial matters. He graduated from Columbia Law School, is qualified in both China and New York, and has a thorough understanding of China’s unique legal, political, and cultural environment. With his diverse background, Jie excels at providing pragmatic solutions to his clients as they navigate the ever-changing regulatory landscape and conduct complex transactions around the globe.

Antitrust & Competition

For years now, Chambers has consistently ranked Jie among the top antitrust lawyers in the PRC, saying, “Tong Jie chairs DaHui's competition law practice and can handle the full range of antitrust work. He is particularly active on market concentration filings for big-ticket acquisitions and compliance with merger remedies”. One of his clients, quoted in Chambers, put it simply: “Mr Tong is an antitrust lawyer you can trust."

The Legal 500 has ranked Jie as a “Leading individual” (its highest ranking) for years. Since he began practicing, Jie has handled hundreds of antitrust matters, including significant cross-border work for some of the world’s biggest and most well-known companies. Jie has 10+ years working experience at the PRC Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM), where he was heavily involved in the drafting of regulations and handling legal matters. Jie also has a diplomatic experience working at the Chinese Embassy in the UK. His public sector work gave him a deep understanding of how regulatory agencies work and allow him to better propose pragmatic solutions to clients in today’s complex international environment. In the private sector, prior to joining DaHui, Jie worked at Allen & Overy for several years, where he represented clients in numerous complex antitrust matters and provided practical, business-minded legal advice to both multinational and Chinese clients.

Transactions

In addition to his top-level expertise in the field of Antitrust and Competition, Jie is known for his knowledge about the local and international investment landscape. His services cover all stages of investment, including project investment structuring, project investment, capital restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, exits (including IPOs and other listing methods), and more. Jie’s clients include institutional investors of all sizes, private equity investors, and various important participants, such as government-led funds, state-owned investors, seed investors, promotional investors, fund managers, and advisors.

Jie has been involved in the equity investment projects of many well-known domestic and international USD and RMB funds and represented many domestic startups in their equity financings. Crucially, Jie has an in-depth understanding of the problems that Chinese companies often encounter during their domestic and international financings and investments, as well as the solutions for these problems. He has extensive experience in RMB funds, USD funds, parallel structuring, and cross-border investment funds involving multiple jurisdictions.
