Young lawyer recognised


Cite as: Jan/Feb 2015 89 (1/2) LIJ, p.14

Robinson Gill lawyer Lu Cheng (commercial litigation) was one of 55 new specialists conferred at the event. Also, 25 25-year family law specialists were recognised.

Ms Cheng, 30, came to Melbourne from Shanghai in 2001 when she was 16. Dux of her high school, Nazareth College in Noble Park, and with a VCE score of 99.7 and a Premier’s language award under her belt, Ms Cheng headed straight to the University of Melbourne to study law.

With Robinson Gill for almost four years, Ms Cheng said gaining specialisation was part of the firm’s culture – she is one of eight accredited specialists including founding partner and former LIV councillor Tim Robinson (family, commercial litigation). As soon as she had the required five years experience she sought accreditation.

“At the first opportunity I grabbed it, it was a goal of mine. It gives me confidence but it also gives clients confidence that I hold the relevant expertise. As a young professional it is always a challenge when you meet a client and they see you are young and ask about your experience. So confidence plays an important role,” said Ms Cheng who leads the commercial litigation team at her firm.
