Pillar Legal has served as one of our key outside counsel for China matters since 2009, representing EA in connection with numerous game license agreements and strategic partnerships. The Pillar Legal attorneys have a deep understanding of China’s regulatory environment along with the concerns of international companies, which they use to help find practical solutions to the challenges of doing business in China. We are glad to have them on our team.
Greg served as the first general counsel of Shanda, helping to complete our IPO and Nasdaq listing along with numerous acquisitions and key licensing agreements. In addition, Greg led our legal team in winning a key litigation relating to our core product. Greg and I have always spoken to one another in Mandarin, and over the years he has used his understanding of both China and the U.S. to help guide us through many international legal matters. I have confidence in his judgement and value his advice.
Greg is one of the best legal professionals we have worked with. His analytical ability and years of experience in the video game industry enables him to provide thoughtful, thorough, and creative legal advice. He listens carefully to client questions and he responds quickly and clearly with analysis and advice aimed directly at the issue. Greg understands our business needs and is a valuable advisor to Perfect World.
I cannot say enough good things about Greg and the Pillar Legal team. They are bi-coastal (San Francisco - Shanghai), bilingual and bicultural. I’ve done over 40 venture deals with Greg over the last 8 years on the investment, sell and buy side, and I often highly recommend that our portfolio companies utilize Pillar Legal for their legal needs.
