E-Ming Fong

E-Ming is a partner in our Dispute Resolution Department, undertaking cases covering the full spectrum of general commercial litigation.  Her particular specialism is in civil fraud.

E-Ming is regularly instructed to help resolve commercial disputes for her clients, either by way of negotiation or through litigation. E-Ming is particularly adept at obtaining interim urgent orders from the courts across Scotland in order to protect her clients' assets and interests swiftly and, where possible, without notice.  She has appeared in the Sheriff Courts and in the Court of Session (Outer House, Inner House and also in the Commercial Courts). She has extensive experience in respect of breach of contract claims, major and complex fraud, professional negligence claims, commercial property disputes and intellectual property disputes.

E-Ming’s clients range from major financial institutions and institutional landlords, through to SMEs and individuals. Her caseload is varied but usually involves complex and high value disputes, acting for both pursuers and defenders. Her cases often require the instruction of experts in order to assist the court, whether those experts be from the engineering, scientific or professional fields. She also combines her industry-wide experience in reputation management when advising clients on all aspects of dispute resolution.

E-Ming leads the firm's civil fraud team and she is an active and longstanding Scottish member of the International Fraud Group. The IFG is a network of 32 legal firms covering 54 key jurisdictions.  The IFG meets bi-annually in London and across the international network in order to build global ties and share local knowledge in asset tracking and fraud disruption.  She is also a member of the Fraud Womens Network.
