The HKCCA and The Hong Kong Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) are proud to announce the launch of their Women in Law and Business Series, kindly hosted by Slaughter and May.
In the first of this series, HKCCA and FIDA Members will enjoy a panel discussion between two former lawyers turned social enterprise entrepreneur and charity founder respectively, followed by cocktails and canapés.
Anne is a lawyer admitted to practise in Hong Kong, England and Wales, Singapore, and several states of Australia. After she graduated from the University of Hong Kong she joined Baker & McKenzie. In 2001 she joined Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) in Shanghai (which was then a start-up) as VP of Legal & Finance and played a key role in assisting the SMIC founder to turn SMIC into China’s largest and most advanced semiconductor foundry and successfully list it on the NYSE and the SEHK in 2004. Anne also subsequently opened a representative office for SMIC in Hong Kong.
Anne was elected as President FIDA eight times between 2000 and 2014 and she is still a Council Member, Chair of the Martial Arts Committee and Chair of the Youth Committee at FIDA.
Anne has received various awards for charitable work and services, including the 2010 Pro Bono Distinguished Service Award by the Law Society of Hong Kong, and the 2015 Hong Kong Outstanding Women Volunteers Award by YWCA.
We look forward to seeing you and enjoying a drink with you all.
