Brenda Wong Robinson
Mrs Brenda Wong Robinson is a Swindon based bi-lingual English and Cantonese speaking family lawyer. She is also conversant in Mandarin and has found (since qualifying as a Solicitor in 1987) that her language skills and upbringing in Hong Kong are incredibly useful attributes, especially when dealing with Chinese clients unfamiliar with English language or custom. This cultural empathy enables her not only to communicate with, but also to understand the needs and wants of Chinese clients. She currently works closely with lawyers in Hong Kong and China to advise on family matters in those jurisdictions.
Of course Mrs Wong Robinson’s cultural learning is not restricted to the Far East; having lived in England since 1978 she is naturally familiar with the idiosyncrasies of the Western World and she often represents domestic clients in English courts.
Professionally Mrs Wong Robinson has been with the firm since 1995. As head of the Family Law Department she is a member of the Law Society Family Law Panel. She is a Family Law specialist with Resolution and she has been a Collaborative Family Lawyer since 2006 as well as a Family Law Mediator.
