About Me

I am a partner leading the Greater China Employment team comprising lawyers in Hong Kong and China. I also co-lead the firm's CSR and D&I Committees in Hong Kong. I have over 26 years of experience handling the full range of employment matters, including contentious terminations, investigations, discrimination claims, restrictive covenants, employment litigation, executive contracts, data privacy, restructuring and APAC regional projects.

I have counselled companies across a range of industry sectors, including financial services, technology, logistics, pharmaceuticals, aviation, manufacturing, education, entertainment, hospitality and media.

In addition to having worked both as a litigator and advisory lawyer in private practice, I spent 7 years working for a global bank as Head of Employment, Asia Pacific, covering 12 jurisdictions. As a result, I am fortunate to be able to bring to the table a breadth and depth of insight which clients find valuable.

I work closely with a fabulous team of professionals, who not only enjoy and are good at what they do, but who also like each other. We work seamlessly together and meet regularly to ensure we are on top of client needs as well as the latest legal developments.

I work very closely with Diana and find her ease and the way she can explain legal terminology in layman's terms very reassuring.

Employment matters are usually tricky and sensitive, and she (Diana) balances the legal requirements and commercial needs very well.
