With over two decades experience in both New Zealand and Hong Kong, I have developed a practice that is split between complex commercial litigation and regulatory litigation and have conducted a wide range of commercial litigation including court and arbitration proceedings in relation to shareholder disputes, contractual claims, finance disputes, investment fund disputes, and insolvency.

Through my work in the regulatory area, I often engage in judicial review proceedings and have conducted many of the leading public law cases in the financial services regulatory area in Hong Kong.

I am the honorary solicitor for the Actuarial Society of Hong Kong, and assist the Society in its project to become a statutory body responsible for the regulation of the Actuarial profession in Hong Kong. As a member of Lexis' Practical Guidance Editorial Board, I have authored the Investigations and Enforcement Proceedings chapter of Lexis' Practical Guidance - Financial Services, and I am currently writing a book for LexisNexis on Securities and Futures Commission investigation and enforcement proceedings, which is scheduled for publication in 2019.
