Other relevant Mediation Experience

I was in fact the first batch of practitioners who attended the CEDR training course and CEDR Negotiation Course in Hong Kong. Since then, I have been practising mediation throughout in my career. In recent years, the Hong Kong Judiciary has introduced some form of “compulsory” mediation in certain cases before the matters can be listed for hearing, hence I have been involved in mediation cases in all my cases. Further, I am also the first batch of “CEPA” Investment Agreement Mediator between Hong Kong and Mainland China. I have conducted the first CEPA Investment Agreement between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. I have also the chairperson of the ICC Commercial Mediation Competition – Hong Kong and have been involved in promoting mediation to university students in Hong Kong. I am the chairperson of the Public Education and Publicity Sub-Committee on promotion of mediation for the Hong Kong Government. I am also a committee members of the Steering Committee on Mediation also for the Hong Kong Government.
