Reed Smith boosts regulatory enforcement team in Shanghai
Reed Smith has hired former Pfizer in-house lawyer John Tan as a counsel in its Global Regulatory Enforcement team in Shanghai.
Tan was Pfizer’s China regional compliance director for the past two years, and he previously worked at Keller & Heckman for three years, focusing on food and drug laws for clients across East and Southeast Asia.
Roger Parker, Reed Smith’s managing partner for Europe, the Middle East and Asia, said: “We’re continuing to build our Asia practice, and John’s arrival allows us to further expand our China-Hong Kong and Asia capabilities to help all types of clients doing business throughout Asia, especially in the life sciences sector.”
“John brings us key experience, not only with FCPA and internal investigations, but a deep knowledge of the risk factors unique to the China market for drug and device companies,” added Jay Yan, Reed Smith’s Shanghai head.
