Solicitor Director

CS Lawyers’ Solicitor Director Mr Shun Cheng holds a Bachelor of Arts (History) and a Master of Laws from Liaoning University, China and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Queensland, Australia.

Before coming to Australia in 1998 Shun lectured in the Law School, Liaoning University for three years.

Since graduating from the University of Queensland in 2002, Shun has worked in a number of Australian law firms including two Australia top-tier firms. He has advised clients from various industries including energy, mining, government organisations, pharmaceuticals, construction, clothing and business consulting.

Shun has advised clients from both Australia and China. He has assisted clients from China in acquiring interests in Australia and setting up appropriate structures to facilitate future operations in Australia. Shun also assisted Australian clients setting up joint ventures and other businesses in China.

In Shun’s practice, he has also been involved in litigation matters. Apart from winning a few significant cases in the Supreme Court of New South Wales and the Federal Court of Australia, in early 2009 he helped a Chinese client successfully enforced an arbitral award delivered by the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC) in the Supreme Court of New South Wales. His experience in litigation and dispute resolution helps his clients significantly in avoiding potential disputes.

As one of the first Chinese born and educated lawyers to qualify as a solicitor in Australia, Shun has a unique set of legal skills and experience.

Shun has a thorough understanding of the differences between Australian and Chinese cultures. His ability to bridge the gap between the two cultures places him as one of the leaders in helping Chinese corporate and individual investors to invest successfully in Australia.

Shun was a director of a non-profit organization for over 7 years.

Shun is admitted as a solicitor to the High Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of New South Wales.
