Our clients include a board spectrum of aviation clients including airlines, lessors, financial institutions and other leading aviation industry business. We act for our clients on a wide variety of cross-border transactions throughout the Asia-Pacific region, due to the nature of these transactions we work with our expert colleagues in Bird & Bird and other law firms in the region. Having come from an in-house position prior to my current role, I am aware of clients concerns from an in-house perspective. Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked at another international law firm where my work involved structured financing, aviation as well as shipping. Before that I worked in-house at a major Asian container shipping company, a hedge fund in Hong Kong and an Australian-listed energy company. This in-house experience has provided me with valuable expertise in structured financing including Japanese operating leases and UK tax leases. Before returning to Hong Kong, I practised law in South Africa. I am fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
