About Me

As Counsel in our Commercial team in Hong Kong and head of our Data Protection group for China and Hong Kong, I am an experienced telecoms, media and technology lawyer with a substantial data protection practice.

Acting on behalf of clients including leading regional and international telecoms operators, media companies, multi-national technology companies, payments companies and institutional investors, I have close to 20 years' experience advising clients on corporate, commercial and regulatory matters in the TMT sector. I also have extensive experience advising clients on data protection issues in the region.

I am a frequent contributor to articles and publications on the evolving data protection regime in the region, in particular the China Cyber Security Law, and am a regular speaker on the subject.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2015 having worked in the Hong Kong office of another international law firm, and in 2003 also worked as in-house legal counsel when I was seconded to Exonomy, a B2B trading platform of Standard Chartered Bank.

I am fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
Experience
  • On technology and communications, I frequently advise clients on telecommunications regulatory compliance in China and Hong Kong, in particular in relation to the complex telecom regulatory regime in China, and advise multi-national companies with businesses in China on practical and commercial solutions to meet the relevant regulatory requirements. I also frequently advise clients on drafting and negotiating technology related commercial contracts including licensing and outsourcing arrangements.
  • On data protection, I have advised numerous multi-national clients on data protection regime and protection in the region. I also work on multinational data protection compliance projects involving data retention and have advised on a number of data breach incidents in both Hong Kong and China. On data protection compliance, I frequently advise clients on compliance with the evolving data protection regime in China, including the China Cyber Security Law and cross border data transfer issues. I also frequently advise clients in the region on the GDPR, including the applicability of the GDPR to their businesses, and compliance measures to be taken.
