A solicitor specialising in litigation and financial regulation, I trained and worked in private practice in Hong Kong for nine years, before moving in-house to work for an investment bank. While I enjoyed my work as a lawyer, I sought more variety over the type of work I chose to do, and wanted more control over my working hours.
My first consultancy assignment was within the Allen & Overy Hong Kong office, working on contentious financial regulatory investigations. It was a great experience working as part of the team alongside A&O associates. Peerpoint works with high-calibre, international clients, which gives me access to challenging, top-tier work. It also presents opportunities for me to work outside of litigation and investigations.
Peerpoint offers excellent resources, such as in-house seminars, know-how and events, as well as opportunities to network among the consultants. For me, consulting with Peerpoint has given me a greater work-life balance, and has enabled me to pursue my Japanese language studies. With a more flexible working structure, I have also had more time to travel and explore Japanese culture, which has provided me with a really valuable opportunity that most likely would not have been possible within a permanent role.
