I am committed to helping international clients, primarily Asian clients, with their commercial and personal legal issues in Australia. My background and experience provide me with unique insights in and a deep understanding of my clients’ circumstances and issues.

Fluent in speaking and writing in Mandarin with an understanding of Cantonese, I use my language skills to work directly with clients to liaise and connect them with experienced lawyers at Thynne + Macartney based on their needs and desired outcome.



With an in-depth knowledge of the migration laws and policies, I provide prompt and accurate advice to an extremely high standard on migration matters across a range of visas, including:

  • business and investor visas
  • employer sponsored visas (acting for the employer and employee)
  • distinguished talent visas
  • independent migration visas
  • spouse visas
  • parent visas
  • other family visas
  • student visas

I also assist clients with:

  • visa appeals
  • visa renewals
  • ministerial intervention

Apart from being a solicitor, I am also a registered migration agent (MARA: 1461116) who is committed to providing high quality migration and legal advice.

As a Migration Institute of Australia (MIA) member, I practise according to the MIA Code of Ethics, Practice and Conduct, which is designed to maintain the highest standard of professionalism across the migration industry. I maintain my knowledge of migration laws and policies through ongoing CPD programs with the MIA as well as presenting seminars on migration laws and policies on a regular basis.

Having been through the migration process myself, I know the process can be very complicated. I also know what prospective migrants have to go through and how it feels to start a new life in a foreign country. This helps me to understand my clients better.


Family law

Commencing family law matters is often emotional and complex, and for migrant families there can be unexpected hurdles. Working with our family law team, I help families navigate the challenges to achieve the best possible outcome.

The family law issues I assist in include:

  • marriage, separation and divorce
  • parenting orders
  • binding financial agreements
  • child support


Foreign investment and litigation

I assist international clients with growing their investments in Australia. If needed, I am here to assist them to take the appropriate action to protect their interests and defend their rights.

I can assist with:

  • starting an Australian business
  • acquiring or selling interests in assets of Australian business
  • applying for Foreign Investment Review Board approval
  • acquiring or selling Australian real estate
  • providing legal advice on a diverse range of commercial contracts and agreements
  • dispute resolution
