I really have not made much of an effort to maintain this blog over the past year. Much has changed since my last post. Although I took the NY bar exam this July, I plan on remaining in Madison, Wisconsin where both my law practice and a China related consulting firm I co-founded with a former law school classmate will be based. Due to the amount of time I like to put into equity research and the lack of free time in my current schedule, I have not been trading very much as of late. Perhaps this will change in the future, but right now my primary focus is on building my business.
For those who are interested, I am building a law practice in the areas of immigration law, bankruptcy law, criminal defense (I am particularly interest in white collar crime) and anything related to doing business with China. Of course based on my business background, some people would wonder why I would not focus primarily on corporate law or securities law, etc. While I am still interested in these areas, I want to focus on areas that somewhat relate to my other businesses (such as immigration and Chinese related law). I also want to concentrate on practice areas where the revenue tends to come upfront (such as criminal defense, immigration and bankruptcy so that I do not have the economic pressures of having to deal with the economic strains of expensive litigation relating to cases based on a contingency fee arrangement. Criminal defense also happens to be one of the best areas of law for those interested in gaining lots of trial experience early on.
