Christine is recognised as a heavy weight Dispute Resolution lawyer. She is the litigation lawyer who does not like going to court. Her objective is to use every rule in the book (and she has) to get a result for her clients within an agreed budget and timescale that will enable people in business to continue to run their companies without the distraction of a law suit. With a background in England and Hong Kong with National and City of London law firms, she brings invaluable experience and insight into every case however big or small.
