Investigations and white-collar crime specialist Haiyan Tang, who left Paul Hastings’ Shanghai office as a partner last year to join CBC Group at its chief legal and compliance officer, has returned to the U.S. firm.

Tang will be initially based in San Diego, before relocating to Shanghai in the near term. She advises clients enforcement, cross-border litigation and arbitration, investigation and compliance matters. Tang also has expertise in private equity, financial fraud, antitrust and competition issues, government sanctions, and trade policies.

Before spending nearly five years at Paul Hastings in her previous stint – during which time Tang was promoted from of counsel to partner – she worked at Kirkland & Ellis, O’Melveny & Myers and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.
