Julia practises in the areas of commercial, property (both commercial and residential), trusts and finance law.  She has developed expertise acting for clients in relation to complex commercial and business transactions.  She advises both lenders and borrowers on financing transactions with particular expertise in mortgagee’s remedies and issues arising out of security and other financial arrangements, including under the Property Law Act 2007.

Julia’s extensive experience covers property related transactions, including commercial leasing, complex title issues including rectification of defective titles, subdivisions, body corporate matters, dealing with unauthorised building works issues and general conveyancing.

Julia speaks Cantonese and Mandarin and can read and write Chinese.  She acts for a diverse multicultural client base.  Julia endeavours to provide her clients with objective legal advice and always considers her clients’ best interests and commercial needs when acting on their behalf.

“I am determined to continue building strong relationships with clients by providing them with objective legal advice that will serve their best interests and commercial and personal needs. To me, being a lawyer is not just a profession and a career, but also a way to meet and help people, and an avenue to share in others’ lives.”

Julia was led to the law by her appreciation of people and desire to share in their lives, face their challenges alongside them, and assist with solving their problems.  She appreciates the exposure to various perspectives and industries her practice gives her that she might not otherwise have.

When not working hard to assist her clients, Julia loves travelling, musicals, opera, and movies. She does not play any sports regularly, but welcomes the opportunity to participate as an occasional team member.
