Linda will stand with you.
Approachable and easy to talk to, Linda has engaged in extensive social justice volunteer work in and outside Canada. Her global perspective adds invaluable insight to her legal work, as she provides practical and creative recommendations to her clients and helps them achieve their best results.
As part of our Vancouver office’s Realization Team, Linda represents both institutional and private lenders in foreclosure and insolvency proceedings. She has appeared in court numerous times on matters of mortgage enforcement, debt collection, bankruptcy and insolvency. Prior to joining Fulton, Linda completed her articles and worked as an associate at a national law firm.
Being an immigrant to Canada as a child and having completed a unique legal fellowship abroad with International Justice Mission, Linda deftly navigates different cultural backgrounds. Family and friends are of great importance to her, and you’ll often find her organizing social events to bring people together. Linda is fluent in Mandarin and speaks conversational Cantonese.
