Profile

Kacy has been receiving intensive training in contentious matters since traineeship. Her principal practice areas include complex cross-border commercial disputes, fraud, assets recovery, and cybercrimes. After joining OLN, Kacy utilizes her tax background and is now developing another practice in tax and has acted for domestic and global clients to handle different contentious and non-contentious tax matters.

Kacy adopts a hands-on approach in handling cases and, therefore, is highly trusted by high-net-worth PRC individual clients.
