Secretary Chloe Whitthread
Christina is an associate in the Litigation and Arbitration team.
Christina started her career as an advocate and solicitor of the Singapore bar in 2017. Her work focused on dispute resolution, including litigation before the Singapore Courts as well as arbitration matters administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC).
She subsequently decided to pursue her interest in international law, obtaining an LLM in international dispute settlement with the Geneva Graduate Institute and University of Geneva in 2019. She has since spent time in a top international law firm in Paris, working in particular on a high-value ICSID claim in the energy sector.
She now works on matters involving public international law, investment treaty arbitration and international commercial arbitration.
Me in a minute
Embracing new perspectives – that’s how I would describe my choice of specialisation and my approach to life in general.
Embracing new perspectives - that's how I would describe my choice of specialisation and my approach to life in general. My interest in international law stems from its diversity, both in terms of the players involved as well as the scope of potential issues. Each case is unique and finding the best solution for the client always requires a look at the matter with fresh eyes. I enjoy the challenge of my work, and that's why I've quite literally pursued international law around the world.
Since finishing law school, I've lived in 4 different cities for work and study. I started my legal career as an advocate and solicitor in Singapore. I then moved to Geneva for my LLM in international dispute settlement, and then to Paris to gain work experience at a top international law firm.
Now here with Withers in London, I work on matters involving public international law and international arbitration. I have a great team and enjoy the work. The journey continues.
