“I enjoy meeting people from very different backgrounds and listening to their stories,” says Sissi.
Originally from Zhejing, China, a neighboring province of Shanghai, Sissi has visited a number of cities in the U.S., Europe and China and ventured across the globe to Indonesia, Australia and Canada. “Traveling has allowed me to understand different cultures and given me the opportunity to broaden my horizons.”
Sissi earned her Bachelor of Law and her Master of Law in International Business from the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. Shortly after, she moved to the U.S. to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison law school where she received her Master of Law degree and the Dean’s Scholar Award for her academic achievement. “Having attended law school in the U.S and China, I have developed a very solid understanding of both legal regimes,” explains Sissi.
Sissi held a yearlong internship at Addison-Clifton in Milwaukee before returning to China for an internship with Paul Hastings, a top U.S. law firm. Upon completing her second internship, she transitioned into a new role at Addison-Clifton by heading up its Shanghai office.
As the Assistant Director of Asia Market Services for Addison-Clifton, Sissi is responsible for the coordination and management of China/Asia Market Services, including supply chain support services, trade compliance services and business liaison services. “I’m motivated at work to serve my clients with skill and professionalism, to provide value and offer informed solutions.”
“Addison-Clifton has been in China for nearly a decade and has been a part of China’s growth during the country’s most transformative years,” explains Sissi. “With our team of experienced and diverse professionals, we’re capable of providing solutions to a wide array of companies across many different industries.”
