Acted in a complex and highly conflicted case involving the removal of children to a different jurisdiction and the division of marital assets. Issues included whether the unvested shares in a company were marital assets, whether there should be an ‘addback’ and the case involved expert evidence in respect of the parties’ expenditure: JHCI v MSYI  HKCU.
Advised on a high profile case in the High Court in Hong Kong concerning the maintenance of a child under the Guardianship of Minors Ordinance. This high value case has also involved issues relating to international custody and children over various jurisdictions, including the UK and the US. The child finance aspect of the case was reported as: WGL v ASB (Child Maintenance under the GMO)  HKFLR 391.
Worked on the first case to consider the impact of the Court of Final Appeal’s decision in SHP v SA in respect of the enforceability of prenuptial agreements in Hong Kong. This test case in particular considered the impact of a prenuptial agreement on the payment of Maintenance Pending Suit and the implications of a ‘Crossley’ application: B.L v K.WS (prenuptial agreements, MPS and litigation funding) FCMC 17190/2014;  HKCU 1831 HKFLR .
