With significant experience in regulatory enforcement and compliance, Cheung has acted on major investigations and other proceedings by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission.

He brings a nine-lawyer corporate finance team from Locke Lord with him, including corporate finance and capital markets specialist partner Matthew Wong. The team also includes counsel King Hui and Roger Wong, and senior associate Carmen Liang.
