This meeting promoted and absorbed 12 senior partners, most of which are post-80s, with an average age of 38, and are specialized in a variety of service areas such as capital market, real estate, and intellectual property. The injection of more and more fresh blood has brought JT&N more passion and vitality. At the same time, the meeting also deliberated and approved the proposal for the expansion of the leased office space of JT&N Shanghai and JT&N Shenzhen. Relying on the core geographical advantages of Lujiazui, Shanghai and Futian District, Shenzhen, JT&N will create a broader, and more complete and intelligent office environment to attract talents.
Only with healthy and perfect system and advanced management ideas can a more desirable future be created. Keeping innovation and advancing with the times has always been the ideological banner of JT&N for its steady development. Every step of JT&N's development depends on not only the excellent vision of the founding partners, but also the strong rise of the new forces. Another important achievement made at the meeting was the four important reform proposals deliberated and approved through extensive and enthusiastic discussion among the senior partners present: reform of core management system, reform of business development and management system, reform of branch office development and management system, and management of the policy on the retirement of senior partners.
