Cecilia's practice has an international aspect predominantly in a wide range of Commercial Litigation and Arbitration matters and often relates to foreign jurisdictions such as China, the Caribbean, Isle of Man, Europe, Africa and New York.
Cecilia brings a unique contribution to clients’ legal matters, particularly regarding China and the Asia-Pacific region thanks to her extensive knowledge and connection with this region and her Chinese Mandarin language and cultural skills.
Cecilia is one of two practitioners at the UK Bar who reads and writes Chinese Mandarin, as a native speaker.
Before joining the independent Bar of England and Wales, she worked for several years in city law firms in London and Shanghai.
Prior to her legal career, she developed more than ten years’ experience in commerce and international development in the UK and China.
When considering a chambers move with my team, I met with all the major players in the industry. Guy and Tony were our clear preferred choice.
They were authentic in their approach, challenged us when they felt it necessary and ultimately delivered a seamless service. Most importantly they showed complete discretion, which was for us the most important criteria.
Their reputation for being leaders in their field is well deserved and I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
