Wei Zhou 周偉
Zhong Lun Law Firm 北京市中倫律師事務所
Ms. Zhou is one of the earliest and most professional lawyers to engage in capital market disputes, in China.
From the inception of her career, she has observed that securities misrepresentation disputes are increasing in the international developed capital markets. Despite significant developments in China’s securities market, the regulatory and judicial enforcement practices were underdeveloped.
Hence, she decided to focus on capital market dispute resolution including securities compliance and litigation, and corporate litigation.
Fast forward to today, Ms. Lou’s work has exerted an enormous influence on this field. Her representations often make ‘Top Ten’ case lists, and are cited in Supreme Court understanding. This has led to revisions of judicial interpretations of securities misrepresentations.
As a lawyer at the frontier of this field, she has taken on many cutting-edge cases. She handled the first case of illegal operating securities off-exchange and market manipulation of ETF. She also represented Wuliangye, the Chinese liquor producer, in the largest securities misrepresentation case in China.
In the past year, she has persuaded the court to exempt ProTruly’s then-directors from civil liability in misrepresentation civil suits. She also represented Daxin in a 1.3 billion RMB case involving fraudulently issued company bonds. She has represented Xunyou Network Technology in the alleged misrepresentation of forward-looking information as well. Even with no current regulations on this issue, Ms. Zhou’s arguments persuaded the court to dismiss the plaintiff’s claims.
Ms. Zhou was named a 2021 ALB China Top 15 Rising Lawyer, and a 2022 Rising Star by CBLJ.
作為該領域前沿的律師，她代理了許多前沿案件。 她處理了第一起非法經營場外證券和ETF市場操縱案件。 她還代表中國白酒生產商五糧液處理了中國最大的證券虛假陳述案。
在過去的一年，她已說服法院免除ProTruly當時的董事在虛假陳述民事訴訟中的民事責任。 她還代表大信（Daxin）處理了一起涉及欺詐發行公司債券的13億元人民幣案件。 她還曾代表迅遊（Xunyou）網絡科技涉嫌虛假陳述前瞻性資訊。 儘管現時沒有關於這個問題的規定，但周女士的論點說服法院駁回了原告的訴訟請求。
