Buxian Xia

Asia Pacific Counsel

Heidy assisted with my relocation from HK to mainland China in 2015. I had a wonderful experience working with Heidy as I found her to be consistently reliable and always up-to-date on the latest market and employer information. I am grateful to Heidy for having paved the way for my seamless transition from a private practice career in HK to an in-house career in China. I would definitely recommend Heidy to any potential candidate in the China market or anyone who is considering relocation from HK to China as she is a true gem and the consummate professional who is always willing to go the extra mile.


Alan Huang

APAC Regional Director, Compliance and Ethics

Taylor Root and Heidy Zhou helped me to find my dream job. Heidy was the most dedicated consultant I have ever worked with. For the half year that I worked with her to obtain my current role, Heidy was always extremely diligent in her communication with me and the hiring company. It was a gruelling process and Heidy was always positive and professional throughout. Taylor Root is the search firm that I continue to work with now for future hiring needs.


Huili Guan

Legal VP & Country Lead Lawyer

I knew Heidy for many years. She is a person that you always want to share your thoughts, ideas, and even personal feelings. I know I can count on her and she is always there to support me. She helped me to form a strong legal team because she understands clients’ needs, culture and vision. She knows the importance of the right fit and strive to do better. With her support, I also embrace the new challenge of my career which I am so excited. I trust her as a client and as a candidate, and more as a friend. I believe Heidy’ great service also reflects Taylor Root’s value and core competence. Taylor Root helps legal people to chase our dream and always strive for the best.


Wei Zhang

Sole Counsel

I knew Ms. Heidy Zhou almost two years ago via a job opportunity at a British NGO in Beijing. She is very helpful and supportive from the first call of introduction of the opportunity till the very end of communication on offer. One day before the interview, Heidy called and helped me prepare for the interview, and she made follow up calls and visit even after I joined the current company. This is the most comprehensive, impressive and professional “services” I had received so far. If you are hunting for talents or jobs, I highly recommend you contact Taylor Root, and contact Heidy Zhou.”


Min Li

Chief Legal Counsel

I’ve known Heidy for more than 6 years. She is very professional and has rich experience in recruitment and understands the legal talent market very well. She listens to your needs and tries her best to serve you. She can also provide great support and valuable advice for candidates on analysing your strength and weakness and career development plan. For me, rather than being a hunter, Heidy is a friend and advisor of career. I would strongly recommend her.
