WSG Leadership

Dispute Resolution Group
Felicia is an experienced advocate who specialises in dispute resolution, with a particular focus in commercial, employment and insolvency disputes. Prior to joining TSMP, she spent several years in the dispute resolution department of one of the big four firms, before moving on to head up the China practice at another firm where she represented clients across industry sectors on a full range of legal issues and high-level cases.

From Felicia's dispute resolution background, her clients have come to expect nothing but direct, comprehensive and commercially savvy advice, especially since she also spent years as a senior in-house counsel at the Jurong Town Corporation where she had a diverse portfolio advising senior management on projects spanning the divestment of multi-million dollar properties, construction and infrastructure disputes, regulatory compliance and collaborations with other government agencies.

It comes as no surprise that in her work Felicia frequently juxtaposes novel arguments with a firm grasp of convention and first principles. A passionate fan of both modern and traditional cultures, Felicia is trained in the form of chess known to the Chinese as Wei Qi (also known as Go in Japan), and the Latin salsa dance, while she also enjoys playing the musical instrument Er Hu and online competitive battle gaming. Felicia writes and speaks fluent English and Mandarin (including the Hokkien and Cantonese dialects) and enjoys the occasional Japanese conversation.
