Founder and Chairman of Christine Lee & Co

 

Christine Lee is the Head of Christine Lee & Co, Chief Legal Advisor to the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the United Kingdom. Her commitment and passion for the Law has constantly propelled the firm forward. Christine is also a specialist in Public Law, Immigration and Family Law. She is a qualified solicitor and a member of the Immigration Law Practitioners Association (ILPA).

Christine is one of the most experienced and leading Chinese lawyers practising in the United Kingdom today. She has worked on some of the leading cases in the field of Immigration and Human Rights and, as a result, is highly regarded by her peers and the UK Chinese Community.

Christine also passionately believes that the law should give a voice to those who otherwise cannot be heard and dedicates a considerable portion of her time and expertise to ensure that under-represented parts of the community find their voices. To this end, Christine founded the North London Chinese Association and the British Chinese Project to represent and provide support to the Chinese Communities in the UK.

Christine has led several campaigns against government policies that directly affect the interests of the UK Chinese Community and also the interests of every ethnic minority community in the United Kingdom. In addition to working with government ministers, senior civil servants and peers to further the interests of the ethnic communities in the UK, Christine also organised the first ever Chinese protest outside the Houses of Parliament. Christine has consistently encouraged increased participation of the Chinese community in the UK political process and has dedicated considerable time and effort into various projects aimed at politicising the generation of UK born Chinese youngsters so they recognise that they too, are stakeholders in the UK and can have their say.

Christine Lee and her team offers a professional and comprehensive legal service in the UK, Europe and China. In November 2013, Madam Christine Lee was awarded Guangdong Top 10 Outstanding Young Overseas Chinese and she has obtained GG2 Leadership Awards of the Woman of the Year 2013. She is the first Chinese person to obtain this prize since the GG2 Leadership Award was established.
