Professional Bio:


I am Counsel in our Hong Kong Litigation and Restructuring & Insolvency practice.
Before joining Mourant Ozannes, I spent almost a decade practising in Mayer Brown’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice in Hong Kong, focussing on restructuring and insolvency matters with cross-border elements. I have considerable experience advising insolvency practitioners in all forms of external administrations and restructuring matters, including schemes of arrangement. I have also acted creditor-side in restructuring matters. I have represented provisional liquidators and liquidators appointed in respect of Hong Kong listed companies generally, including advising in relation to applications for sanction of schemes of arrangement, disclosure and examination orders and disclaimer of onerous property. I have also acted for institutional creditors in applications seeking the appointment of provisional liquidators in Hong Kong.
Prior to relocating to Hong Kong, I qualified into the Dispute Resolution & Litigation practice at Maddocks in Melbourne, Australia. My practice comprised general commercial, financial services and property disputes.


At the second annual Asia Women in Business Law Awards ceremony held by the Euromoney Legal Media Group in November 2012, I was selected in the "Rising Star" category.
