Patricia has focused on employment law since qualifying as a solicitor in 2011, and her experience in employment matters is now widely recognised in Hong Kong.  Since joining HWB from another independent firm in 2015, Patricia has headed HWB's employment team under the overall supervision of Kevin Bowers and Michael Withington. 

Patricia regularly advises employers and senior executives on both contentious and non-contentious employment matters.   Her practice covers a wide range of work, including drafting employment contracts, handbooks and policies, terminations and advising upon the enforcement of post-termination restrictions and confidentiality obligations.   She and her team frequently advise on the employment aspects of M&A deals and business transfers.  Many of her clients operate in the financial services sector, and she frequently negotiates exit packages in relation to high-level employees of banks, brokerages and insurance companies.  Patricia also advises upon the employment issues arising from discrimination and harassment, personal data related matters and immigration issues (including prosecutions).  She also has experience in assisting employers and employees during the conduct of internal investigations and discrimination/harassment complaints. 

Patricia has an in-depth knowledge of the Labour Tribunal, having assisted parties involved in Labour Tribunal proceedings for several years.  She has also represented both plaintiffs and defendants in both District and High Court actions involving substantial claims for unpaid bonuses, enforcement of restrictive covenants and claims for injunctive relief in Hong Kong, including applications for injunctive relief.  She also advises clients on licencing issues and regulatory investigations involving the SFC and the HKMA.
