Profile

Eviana is one of our partners specialising in commercial litigation and marine disputes. She has been admitted to practice in Hong Kong since 2008.

 

With her strong Chinese language skills (Eviana is fluent in both written Chinese and oral Mandarin) and broad exposure to the Chinese market, Eviana focuses on cross border practice and often acts for Mainland, foreign and local corporations and private clients, ranging from state-owned enterprise, senior management, liquidators, start-up companies, Chinese insurers to high net worth individuals.  She focuses on the firm’s China practice and mainly advises on liquidation, re-structuring, listed company internal investigation, shareholders disputes, trade conflicts, recovery of high value debts, arbitration, injunction and other procedural matters. 

 

Eviana started off as a litigator handling company and commercial disputes and private clients matters.  Her practice then expanded to include international trade and marine cases.  Prior to joining Howse Williams Bowers, Eviana was promoted as senior associate of an international law firm regularly acting for prominent insurers and local and foreign corporations in a variety of commercial, trade disputes and regulatory matters. 

 

Eviana offers practical solutions and strategic planning to accommodate clients’ business and personal needs.  As an experienced litigator, she has both contentious and non-contentious practices which cover a wide spectrum over cross border and international trade disputes, company liquidation and individual bankruptcy, corporate re-structuring and scheme of arrangement, company matters, shareholders disputes, breach of directors' duties, corporate internal and forensic investigation, marine cases, insurance, regulatory and enforcement prosecutions. 

 

Eviana speaks fluent Mandarin, Cantonese and English.
