Mutual Cooperation

As a barrister practising at the Independent Bar, I am self-employed and enjoy the freedom to associate, non-exclusively, with any legal practitioner in Australia and around the world.  I am often retained to be part of the legal team on any matter for the client, working closely with the Senior Partner of the law firm.  

I am legally qualified to practise law in all States and Territories of Australia.  I also assist clients with their business and legal matters arising in Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, and the People's Republic of China.

Team work

I also work closely with other associates who can provide the following services:

  • Private Investigations and Forensics

  • Expert Report and Valuation

  • Interpretation and Translation (English to Chinese/Chinese to English)

  • Notary Public

  • Corporate Investigations and Due Diligence

My preferred approach is to work closely with the client and his or her senior executive team.  It takes time to build trust in a professional relationship with clients.   The time I invest in understanding a client's business enables me to better understand the drivers of the client's commercial objectives, and the pressure points in the client's business cycle. Such knowledge enables me to be more effective as its strategic advisor.

When it comes to litigious matters, having a deep understanding of the client's business also enables me to find cost efficient and timely ways to help the client resolve those matters.
