Y-ADR Corporate Counsel Interview #5: Kelly Xing
CPR’s new Y-ADR Interview Series returns with another discussion on in-house work, law practice development, and careers in dispute prevention and resolution.
This week, Y-ADR Steering Committee member Elizabeth Chan, an associate in the London office of Three Crowns, discusses conflict resolution with Kelly Xing, Legal Counsel at General Motors Co. in the Jing’an District, in Shanghai, China.
Kelly discusses her career path and conflict resolution experience, including how she approaches the drafting of dispute resolution clauses, and how the company uses a multi-tiered approach to dispute resolution that focuses on resolving disputes at management level.
She also talks about the business, discussing in detail the GM joint ventures she works on.
