Fiona Chan, Boase Cohen & Collins

Doyles Guide

After earning her Postgraduate Certificate in Laws from the University of Hong Kong in 1990, Fiona was admitted as a Solicitor in Hong Kong in 1992 and as a Solicitor in England and Wales two years later. She first joined Boase Cohen & Collins as an Assistant Solicitor in 1995, becoming a Partner two years later. In 2000, she completed her Master of Laws with Honours at the City University of Hong Kong – this was a double degree course in Chinese and Comparative Law that involved study of the law in mainland China. After some time away from the company, she returned to Boase Cohen and Collins in 2005. Fiona enjoys travelling and maintains a keen interest in environmental issues. She can also be found horse riding at weekends, but insists this is more a parental duty than a hobby.
