This includes advising on pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, high net-worth financial settlements arising out of divorce and relationship breakdown, interim financial applications, complex discovery applications and disputes involving children. She has considerable experience in high value divorces involving non-disclosure of assets, cross-jurisdiction assets and multi-million dollars assets. She has also acted for clients in both contentious and non-contentious probate matters, deputyship applications, divorce proceedings, ancillary matters, custody and maintenance issues.

Huimin is a keen advocate. She has appeared before the Family Justice Courts and the High Court in highly contentious cases and complex litigation. She also has also facilitated the resolution of many cases through private settlements and mediation.

Huimin’s cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills in business and law have provided her with a competitive edge.

She is adept at handling issues relating to the division of business assets in matrimonial proceedings.

Huimin believes strongly that access to justice should be made available to both the rich and the poor. As an assigned solicitor of the Legal Aid Bureau, Huimin also advises legally aided clients in need of legal assistance and acts for them in court proceedings.
