About Me

I am a partner in our Hong Kong office specialising in complex commercial litigation, arbitration, regulatory investigations and anti-money laundering laws.

My commercial disputes practice spans financial services disputes, shareholders' disputes, fraud and asset recovery, employment, product liability, judicial review and contentious insolvency. In my regulatory investigations practice, I advise clients on a variety of regulatory issues, ranging from internal investigations and securities laws related investigations and disciplinary proceedings commenced by the authorities, to representing clients in settlement negotiations with the authorities.

I have advised clients in high-profile commercial disputes as well as investigations by the Securities and Futures Commission and other law enforcement agencies, and have acted for a major international bank in the first investigation by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority after the Hong Kong anti-money laundering law came into force.

Armed with over 20 years of experience gained from a leading international law firm and a red-circle PRC firm, and as senior legal counsel of a Fortune 500 company, I have valuable insights into issues that affect our clients deeply. Being able to transcend languages and culture barriers I am well positioned to deliver business-oriented legal and strategic solutions and well rounded service to assist clients in achieving their commercial goals.
