About Catrina Lam

Catrina is recognized as a leading senior junior barrister whose practice spans all aspects of contentious commercial disputes (including domestic and international arbitrations), administrative and constitutional law, competition (antitrust), securities and regulatory litigation. She is ranked as a Band 1 junior in the Commercial Dispute Resolution section of Chambers & Partners, a Band 1 junior in both the Competition and Commercial Disputes sections of The Legal 500 and a leading junior in the Administrative and Public Law section of The Legal 500.
She has represented domestic and multinational clients operating in a wide range of industry sectors, including banking and financial services, technology, telecommunications, real estate and construction, energy, media and entertainment, manufacturing, education, aviation and gambling. She is experienced in handling highly complex commercial disputes, many involving novel legal issues and/or technical evidence, and has been described as being “great for matters which concern very difficult facts and evidence”. She is in demand for her “sharp legal mind”, “quickness on her feet”, “strong legal literacy” and as a practitioner who “thinks outside the box and always tests the limits of the evidence”.
She appears at all levels of court, as well as other specialist and disciplinary tribunals, including the Competition Tribunal, Securities and Futures Appeals Tribunal, Insider Dealing Tribunal and the Board of Review. In her public law and judicial review practice, Catrina has advised and represented many public bodies and officials, including acting for the Secretary for Justice intervening in the public interest, as well as private individuals.
Catrina is “held in particularly high esteem for her accomplished competition law practice” and is “widely identified as Hong Kong’s front runner for competition matters”. She “stands out” for her “depth of knowledge in competition law”.
Apart from acting as counsel, Catrina accepts appointments to sit as arbitrator. She is on the HKIAC’s List of Arbitrators and is a member of the Panel of Arbitrators for both the Shanghai International Arbitration Centre and the Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration.
Outside of practice, Catrina is active in public service. She has served as a Temporary Deputy Registrar of the High Court and as a Deputy District Judge. She is currently sitting on 6 statutory appeal boards and tribunals on appointment by the Government. She has been serving as the Secretary of the Middle Temple Society in Hong Kong since 2009 and was appointed an Honorary Member of The Honourable Society of the Middle Temple in 2018.
