SENIOR ASSOCIATESindy Wong

Sindy is a senior associate of RKS specialising in both family law and private clients’ management.

She was trained and worked in an international law firm for 6 years on all family issues and had extensive exposure and experience in all aspects of family law, including divorce, nuptial agreements, children, forum issues, adoption, surrogacy, and financial matters, advising high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals and families.

Sindy was involved in a number of the most significant cases before the courts in Hong Kong. Her language skills have also led to numerous cases involving cross border HK/PRC disputes which often involve complex issues relating to the ownership of property as well as trusts, corporate and jurisdictional issues.

Sindy is keen to use all dispute resolution avenues and regularly assists with mediation both within the court process and in private mediations. She is a qualified collaborative practitioner in Hong Kong.

In 2016, she decided to switch her career path and spent 5 years in the trust / wealth planning segment of a global bank as a family governance specialist, working closely with prominent families in Asia for their succession planning needs for the tangibles (e.g. family assets and wealth) as well as the intangibles (e.g. family’s shared values and principles). This included developing bespoke solutions with family and corporate governance, developing family constitutions as well as establishing and implementing the same, with a view to help families perpetuate their legacies from generation to generation.

In 2022, she has decided to re-join the legal profession to exploit her all-rounded experience in the past to serve private clients and to take care of their life needs – whether contentious or non-contentious.
