Senior Associate

I am a Senior Associate in the Disputes, Competition & Insurance Team. My practice focuses on commercial civil litigation, dispute resolution and financial services regulatory matters. I am fluent in English, Mandarin and Cantonese Chinese.

I have experience in various court proceedings involving contractual disputes, civil injunctions, and fraud proceedings.  I have also assisted clients in investigations commenced by financial services regulators in Hong Kong, including the Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”).

I was previously a litigator handling personal injury and insurance litigation.  I had experience in advising international and local insurers on all aspects of insurance litigation, including advising on policy-related issues and defence of claims involving employees’ compensation, public liability and motor liability.  I represented and defended transportation services providers, premises’ owners, construction companies and occupiers in cases involving personal injuries.

I am attentive to client’s matters, through working with my team, we strive to find the most practical solutions to clients.
