'Technically strong, attentive and responsive'
I am a Partner in our Banking and Finance team in Hong Kong, having practiced in Asia for over 12 years. I advise on a broad spectrum of cross-border transactions, including asset finance, fund financing, acquisition and leveraged finance, debt restructurings, project finance, real estate finance, securitisation, Fintech and general corporate lending.
I have significant expertise in helping major financial institutions, lessors and investors on the financing and leasing of commercial aircraft, corporate jets and other related assets, including engines and helicopters, across a variety of structures. I also advise on the finance and leasing of ships and other vessels.
In fund financing, I regularly represent investment and commercial banks on subscription credit facilities. I am on the steering committee for the Fund Finance Association's symposium for Asia, and am co-chair of the Women in Fund Finance Asia committee.
Prior to joining Mourant in 2012, I worked at Clifford Chance in Hong Kong and Dentons in London.
I’m a member of the steering committee for both the Advancement of Women in Aviation Roundtable (AWAR) and the Asia Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association's Women in Finance Asia forum, as well as the Philanthropy Committee Chair.
