Jeannette has a wealth of experience advising clients on contentious and non-contentious employment issues.
Jeannette is a managing associate in our Asia Pacific Employment practice group, based in Hong Kong.
Jeannette has close to eight years of dedicated employment experience and specialises in advising on all aspects of day-to-day contentious and non-contentious employment issues and employment-related immigration issues.

Recognised as a highly skilled and user-friendly lawyer, Jeannette has established her own unique expertise and client base. She uses her linguistic and cultural skills to guide both Hong Kong and international clients using her fluent English, Cantonese and Mandarin, and she brings a truly international focus to all elements of her practice. Jeannette speaks regularly at both in-house events with clients and externally and she also contributes to many publications, most recently co-authoring the 5th Edition of CCH's textbook "Hong Kong Employment Law – A Practical Guide" published in December 2017.
After graduating from the University of Nottingham with a Bachelor's degree in law in 2006, she gained a Master's degree in law from Tsinghua University and in December 2010 she was admitted as a solicitor in Hong Kong.
