15. Hooked on China

Roger Epstein began representing major Hong Kong clients in 1974 and first went to Beijing in 1982.  From 2007-2016 Roger collaborated on a program that brought Chinese lawyers to Hawaii from Shanghai and Suzhou for three month periods to work out of the Cades Schutte law offices, where he was the Chairman of the Tax Department. 

From 2011-2016 he travelled to Shanghai, Suzhou, and Beijing twice a year to facilitate the visiting lawyer program and to give numerous presentations on Chinese investing in the US. 

Roger retired from the active practice of law and is currently a principal of Asia Pacific Group, LLC, which helps facilitate ethical Chinese and American investment. From February to June 2018, Roger taught legal writing and tax law at Beiwai Foreign Studies University Law School in Beijing.
