I have been qualified as a solicitor in Hong Kong in October 1993. I have specialized in civil litigation and worked with both local and international law firms in Hong Kong. I was the Senior Professional Support Lawyer in the Litigation Department of DLA Piper Hong Kong before I left the firm. Commencing from October 2011, I have started a full time mediation practice. I am also a Consultant at a law firm, Wanda Tong & Company.
I have been a dispute resolution lawyer in my legal practice, with substantial experience in commercial litigation, property-related litigation, arbitration, insurance, personal injury and health and safety litigation. Regarding my practice in mediation, I mediate a broad range of commercial disputes (see below).
I am able to mediate with a range of mediation styles, including both facilitative and evaluative and it varies with the parties’ needs and expectations of the process. I emphasize substantial preparation for the mediation session, seek to connect with the parties and counsels and understand the dispute thoroughly before the mediation. Direct dialogue between the parties and their counsels is encouraged and I use both joint sessions and caucuses during the process. I persevere and help parties to reach solution as much as possible and will assist in post-mediation negotiation as and when it is necessary.
