Li returned to China from the US in 2004 and has experience handling mining rights and investments in Europe, North America, Latin America, Central Asia and Africa.

She also has a strong background in mergers and acquisitions and regional FDI. Her experience includes working with European and Chinese clients on major projects and transactions in China.
