I advise on multiple aspects of law, including corporate, commercial, real estate, immigration, employment, and crime.
I have a background in International Commercial Law, and recently led the legal team who managed the reporting and corporate work of the £1M partnership between Innovate UK, the UK government’s innovation arm, and TusPark UK, China’s largest innovation ecosystem, to deliver the first UK-China investment and accelerator programme.
I was also Manchester’s first Chinese Barrister-at-law, called to the English Bar in 1998 and I was a practising barrister for 11 years.
I also advises early-stage technology startups on issues such as matters related to fundraising, intellectual property protection, joint venture, and commercial agreements.
I also has first-hand operational experience of building and running a tech startup, having co-founded a Property Tech startup and SaaS platform as its head of legals.
I speak English, Mandarin and Cantonese fluently. I'm especially well placed to advise Chinese and East Asian clients with complex needs, on the best practices for working in the UK.
I'm also able to assist UK corporations and organisations who would like to expand their global footprint in China via joint venture, trade, or the establishment of a subsidiary office.
I can advise on company formation, corporate and commercial matters, tax, and intellectual property protection for China, as well as coach on cultural best-practices for conducting business in China and East Asia.
I am passionate about social causes and I'm on the Board of Trustees for Wai Yin Society, a Chinese-founded charity in Manchester. It's now one of the largest BME centres in Manchester providing employment, education and community services for Chinese men and women and all ethnic minority groups.
