He focuses his practice on corporate law, securities, private equity, international structuring, technology and entertainment. He is a specialist in developing Internet technologies. Prior to becoming Of Counsel to the firm, Mr. Chan served as COO and General Counsel of Univessence Digital Studios, Ltd, one of the largest on-line game distributors in China. While there, he acted as COO of its US division, which built websites for Sony, Honda, Disney, Boost Mobile, Kyocera, Warner Bros, DIC, Nestle, and Coca-Cola, among others.

Prior to that, he was a founding partner of the Idealflow Angel Fund. He served as the due diligence and screening partner. In addition, as President of its Hexa Incubator subsidiary, he oversaw a virtual incubator dedicated to launching new companies.

Mr. Chan started his career at Peritus Software Services. As acting general counsel, he managed all corporate and transactional legal matters for the company, ranging from VC investments, technology licensing and employee stock option plans, which ultimately culminated in a $60 million IPO on Nasdaq. He negotiated software licenses and services agreements for Year 2000 corrections for clients such as MetLife, Merrill Lynch, Chase Manhattan, the State of New Jersey, AT &T and Lucent. He also licensed trademarks and services, to be resold in the form of branded services, to reselling licensees such as IBM, CSC, Wang, and Keane. While there, Peritus grew from 30 employees to over 500, with 5 offices in 4 countries and $40 million in yearly revenue.  Following the successful $90 million acquisition of a competing company, he successfully managed the integration of their legal department.

Mr. Chan has experience with Bermuda, Cayman Island and BVI corporate structures, as well as structuring investments in Chinese entities. For example, Mr. Chan managed the merger of a Bermuda corporation with a Cayman Island corporation, despite conflicting legal systems, which required the restructuring and integration of approximately 20 Chinese and Japanese subsidiaries.
