Clients value Cynthia's positive "can do" attitude, and describe her as "a real team player, technically excellent, proactive, commercial and calm under fire".

Cynthia previously worked at Ogier in the Cayman Islands and advised on several high profile matters including Cayman National's response to the tender offer by Republic Bank to acquire up to 74.99% of its issued share capital – first transaction of its kind in the jurisdiction. Prior to re-joining Ogier, Cynthia worked at leading global law firms in Melbourne (2019-2021), New York (2014-2018) and Sydney (2010-2014).
