More about Catherine

Catherine works in the Shipping department where she is primarily involved in charterparty, bill of lading and cargo disputes. Prior joining Holman Fenwick Willan's Hong Kong office in 2008, she worked for a niche shipping law firm in the City of London where she gained experience in dry shipping litigation (both High Court and arbitration) and fraud litigation.

She is recommended in Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2019 for Shipping and is noted for being 'knowledgeable, hardworking and client-focused' in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2018 guide.

Catherine was admitted in Hong Kong in May 2009 and holds a practicing certificate for England and Wales and Hong Kong. She is also admitted in Scotland.

The office is a leader in shipping, aviation, commodities, construction, energy, commercial litigation, insurance and corporate matters - regularly winning awards for its work.
