Sabrina Ho of Des Voeux Chambers is characterised by peers as a "very busy," "very hard-working, excellent junior" who "has done very well" in recent cases. Solicitors value her as a "very user-friendly barrister who proactively asks where assistance on particular issues is required," "keeps clients calm, reassuring them that the matter is being supported as it should be," and "presents well, not taking silly points and not upsetting the judges." Within a broad commercial remit, she offers particularly focused expertise in the areas of company law and insurance and contributed to the successful outcome for the defendant in Elite Dragon Limited v BEL Global Resources Holdings Limited, a High Court case which largely concerned the application of the law governing the extent of directors' fiduciary duties.
