I worked with Eric last year at the American Chamber of Commerce. He graduated from the University of Virginia law school and is a New York licensed attorney.
And according to him, his goal is to help provide answers to many of the commons hurdles, struggles and questions that confound the expat community in China. For example, one of his recent posts discusses work visas, describing the process and eligibility requirements for those without work experience.
Consequently, I know from first hand experience (see Chapter 10) how useful it can be to have cogent, legal advice out here. Thus if you plan to work or even travel out on the mainland for an extended period of time, be sure to visit his site or contact him for more information.
