Here at Bird & Bird, I am a partner in our international Employment group and head of our AsiaPac employment team. I am also a member of our Board.

I am currently qualified to practise in Hong Kong, Australia and England. This reflects my recent history where I have been lucky enough to be based in London, Sydney and Hong Kong. At the moment my base is Hong Kong but I regularly meet and work with clients across AsiaPac, in the UK and the US.

I have had a long-term interest and developed expertise in the PRC. As a result, I spend a significant amount of time working with organisations as they navigate the complexities of doing business in China.

Being based in Asia, we tend to work across the whole of AsiaPac and our team manages projects and employment law challenges wherever our clients have people. We cover all aspects of employment law; I spent five years as a barrister in London and so enjoy both the contentious and advisory side of the practice.

Alongside day-to-day employment advice, I also enjoy being part of the key strategic conversations that are taking place around the globe as organisations seek to embrace a rapidly changing environment. I have been talking publicly and with clients about a variety of topics. These range from ethics in the workplace, to embracing 5G and increased workforce digitisation.
