Steve Dickinson, 律师

"实地奔走一天相当于在办公室工作一个月。"
 

Steve的执业着重于协助在中国经商或与中国有生意来往的外国公司。他对自己主要在“真正"的中国工作引以为豪:在北京和上海之外的工厂、渔厂和农场 。在这些地区工作需要对中国语言及其文化与历史有相当程度的了解,而Steve两者兼具。

在中国居住多年且精通其语言和法律系统,使得Steve成为客户眼中极其珍贵的人才资源。他能够完全以中文工作,让他得以对来源材料比通过翻译或二手报告有更深入、更精确的了解,而且也大大地提升效率,进而减少成本。

Steve曾被《华盛顿CEO 杂志》(Washington CEO Magazine)评为华盛顿州「五大最佳律师」之一。他还和Harris Bricken的另一位律师Dan Harris,同时获评“华盛顿州国际法领域的最佳律师”,在仅有的三位获评律师中占据两席。不仅如此,Steve还是首位获独立律师协会之邀前往中国的律师,并曾在中国北京大学法学院和上海律师协会发表中文演讲。

Steve经常在美国各地和中国,针对各种与国际法、中国法、日本法和美国法有关的议题演讲(各以英文及中文方式进行)。他还是中国法律博客的作者之一。 工作之余,Steve喜欢阅读中国诗歌和哲学,并参加青岛 Hash House Harrier的跑步活动。
