Having practiced family law for about 2 decades, Rita has vast experience and knowledge in dealing with a wide range of family disputes concerning jurisdiction, divorce, children, ancillary relief, etc for successful people or their spouse. She also specializes in resolving other life issues of her clients, such as mental health related application, contentious probate and trust.
Her landmark case ML v YJ  HKEC 1924 went to the Court of Final Appeal which subsequently changed the law in Hong Kong concerning a party’s ability to apply for financial provision following a foreign decree. Many of her cases have also become important precedents and have been relied upon by the legal industry.
Rita is also keen on non-contentious work. She understands the needs of different family dynamics, and often advises established families in Hong Kong to preserve and/or protect their wealth for family harmony. She is the only Hong Kong practitioner being shortlisted by STEP as the “People’s Choice – Trusted Adviser of the Year” in 2021. She is also one of the finalists of the Woman Lawyer of the Year of ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2021.
