As a director of the East Asia Insolvency and Restructuring Association (EARA), Mr. Yang has participated in exchange events among insolvency practitioners from China, Japan and South Korea for many years. According to Mr. Yang, an excellent bankruptcy and reorganization lawyer needs to be trained in many different aspects: lawyers should have the awareness and ability to systematically and comprehensively understand and deal with problems.

Additionally,  lawyers should have patience and perseverance, so as to respond to common disputes, contradictions and conflicts in bankruptcy dealings. It is this spirit and conviction that has helped Mr. Yang achieve outstanding results, and won him praise from both the legal media and his peers. From 2021 to 2023, Mr. Yang was awarded the “Lawyer of the Year” by the IFLR1000 China Awards, in 2023, he was awarded the first “Outstanding Reorganization Practice Award” by the Beijing Bankruptcy Administrator Association and in 2022, he was named one of ALB China’s 15 Rising Stars.
