Ai Weiwei and Pu Zhiqiang

Pu represented the famous dissident artist in an appeal when Chinese authorities charged Ai’s design firm with US$ 1.85 million in tax bills and fines, shortly after he was released from nearly three months in detention. Ai’s family have claimed that the accusations were a false premise for detaining Ai, who spoke out against the authoritarian government.
