Private client review:

Jovanne has assisted my client’s family with the application for a Grant of Personal Representation in Hong Kong. The Grant was issued in a period of time that is considered to be quick in view of the fact that it involves 3 jurisdictions. My client and myself are all impressed by her hard work and never-give-up attitude. Jovanne is a professional yet practical lawyer. She always thinks ahead when she gives every piece of advice. Despite Jovanne’s tight schedule at work, she has undertaken pro bono work for university students in Hong Kong as well as her alma mater from time to time. She is recently involved in a pro bono project advising on the use of rooftop of commercial buildings in Hong Kong as an urban farm for community revitalization and social cohesion. I would recommend Jovanne to my clients and friends who need advice in her area of practice.

Private client review:

Jovanne is able to understand the pain of in house counsel and the difficulties we encounter within multinational corporations. She is able to crystallise the legal issues for clients (not only for in house counsel, but also my business colleagues) in a manner that is easy to understand. I particularly appreciate the patience she showed when dealing with complex legal issues and she is able to effectively ask the right questions for me to get a good picture of the real issues at stake. The client experience is a positive and pleasant one, and I definitely would recommend Jovanne as the first point of contact for legal solutions. She is a strong technical lawyer who is always approachable.

Jovanne is super professional and has great attention to detail. We have been lucky to have a lawyer like her!

30 Jul 2019

Institutional client review:

I would say that Jovanne’s strengths are: Analytical skills: she is able to readily make sense and use of a large volume and complex information; Creativity: she is capable of thinking of concrete and unique solutions for complex problems; Logical thinking: she knows how to think logically and make appropriate judgments and assumptions; and Interpersonal skills: she is talented to develop truthful and steadfast relationships with clients. In short, she is a successful and experienced lawyer, knowledgeable, reputable and highly skilled to stand out as a leader in providing effective and highly professional advices and legal representation designed to achieve greater results. I do not identify any weakness and do not believe she needs to make any improvement to her services, except to remain very dynamic, greatly effective and prominently efficient as she is.
