"Wanli provided clear and effective legal advice and related documentation. Was a pleasure to work and comes highly recommended!"
"Wanli is amazing at her work. She provides insightful advice to our team, and provides an experienced perspective to us as business owners and entrepreneurs. I truly regret not having worked with her sooner. Other things worth mentioning: Wanli has always been extremely prompt about turning around documents and providing revisions, and she has always been very accommodating of our schedule, which often requires international hours or last-minute requests. She has also represented us extremely professionally in meetings with external parties. Wanli earns my highest recommendation."
"Just AWESOME job, understood what our needs where and help us move our company into the next phase - AWESOME!!!"
"I had a great experience working with Wanli who assisted in reviewing and advising me on documents related to early stage equity issuance. From the get-go, she stood out from all the other attorneys by taking the time before submitting a proposal to actually look over my document and provide me with some high-level feedback. She quickly made herself available for a consult, taking the time to understand my situation and my goals. During this time, she demonstrated to me not only her strong legal command of this area of law but also gave me confidence that her quote was informed, reasonable and truly tailored to the scope of work I needed. She grasped the urgency of my request and was professional and timely in her review and each follow-up thereafter, flexible by phone call or email. She demonstrates strong knowledge and expertise in early to growth stage businesses. I would highly recommend her."
"We really like working with Wanli. Everything went smoothly and the materials provided were perfect."
