Joyce graduated at law in 1989 and qualified as a barrister in 1990 at the Lincoln's Inns of Court with a view at that time to practice law in Malaysia, where Joyce originally came from. By the time Joyce qualified as a barrister, her circumstances changed and she decided to remain in UK and thus re-qualified as a solicitor in 1991 and has been practicing as one since. Joyce was trained and worked in the West End for a while before setting up her own practice in London Chinatown and then in Surrey before joining Owen White and Catlin.
Joyce specialises in all freehold and leasehold residential and commercial conveyancing and company-related matters, shared ownership transactions, collective enfranchisement and formal and informal lease extension and right to buy schemes.
Joyce is a legal adviser of the Chinese Chambers of Commerce based in London Chinatown, advising on various legal issues to the trustees and members alike, and involving in various activities organised by the Chambers.
Joyce became a Senior Associate in October 2015.
Joyce is fluent in Cantonese and Bahasa Malaysia languages.
When Joyce isn't working, she likes to spend her days travelling all over the world.
"I have found Joyce Lim to be an excellent solicitor, one who is to be commended for her diligent efforts. She has been very pleasant to deal with during the purchase and the sale of my properties, and was very professional and dedicated. I shall continue to use Owen White & Catlin for all conveyancing matters."
"Joyce was efficient and supportive throughout my house purchase's process. She provided vital information, which as a first time buyer, I found very useful. She mediated with the Local Authority on my behalf. She also ensured that all the information was written down."
