Leticia is a star junior in competition as she has invested and acquired expertise in this area. She is very meticulous in her work, she is good at pre-empting possible moves by the other parties, and her advocacy is directed at judge’s areas of concerns, and she is therefore well-liked by leaders and is regularly instructed by the Competition Commission.”

– Legal 500 Hong Kong Bar 2024


Leticia has a broad practice that encompasses all main areas of Chambers’ work, with a particular focus on commercial disputes, civil fraud, insolvency and competition.

Within a relatively short period of time, Leticia has secured recognition from a leading legal directory as a “Rising Star” in the competition field, particularly for her “meticulous” work, being “good at pre-empting possible moves” by her opponents and for being “well-liked”.

Prior to being called to the Bar in 2019, Leticia was admitted as a solicitor in 2014, where she practised at an international firm.  In that capacity, she has acted for listed companies, financial institutions, directors and shareholders in a range of commercial, company and shareholder disputes.  She is therefore uniquely positioned to bring highly relevant commercial experience to her developing practice at the Bar.

Leticia holds an LLM from Harvard University and an LLB from the University of Hong Kong.
