Legal & Compliance
I am a fintech and corporate focused lawyer dually qualified in Hong Kong and Australia. I am a believer of blockchain technology and the applications of which it is capable to enfold in our future.
In my fintech practice, I frequently assist blockchain enthusiasts and advise on blockchain-based projects. They include token launch projects, security token offerings (STO), non-fungible token offerings, licensing regulatory protocols and listing works associated with virtual asset exchanges and service providers. The clients I work with in this domain consists of venture capitalists, blockchain service providers and advisors, SFC-licensed fund managers, virtual asset custodial service providers, exchanges and token issuers.
In my corporate practice, and for the past decade and more, I regularly support clients on a wide range of non-contentious matters. They include corporate financing (equity, debt, convertible instruments), mergers and acquisitions, regulatory compliance, corporate restructurings, joint ventures, general business transactions and internal governance related issues.
I am recently being appointed as the Hon. legal advisor of Asia Pacific Blockchain Federation; a member of the Hong Kong Blockchain Association; and the Vice President & Committee of the Australian Chinese Association of Hong Kong.
Blockchain and fintech aside, I enjoy swimming and playing poker for leisure. I am an avid supporter of Barcelona Football Club – and can regularly be found shouting at the TV when broadcasts are on.
