I am a senior associate in our employment team in Singapore. I draw on my experience as a commercial litigator to provide practical, succinct advice to clients on a broad variety of employment law issues.

I provide strategic commercial advice on a range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters including employee benefits and executive compensation, restrictive covenants, confidentiality, termination, restructuring, HR policies and procedures, and data protection. I work with a diverse international client base across key industry sectors of financial services, oil & gas, transport, education, retail, and technology. With a background in dispute resolution, I take a proactive, disciplined approach to risk management to help clients minimise their exposure to disputes. I have also acted successfully for clients in contentious matters before the High Court and in commercial arbitrations.

Before joining the team at Bird & Bird, I practised civil and commercial litigation and arbitration at a boutique dispute resolution firm.

  • HR data protection for various clients on issues such as data breaches, employee surveillance and cross-border data transfers.
