Lynn Yin

Legal Director

Lynn joined Asserson as a Senior Associate having trained with and qualified into the dispute resolution team at a large international firm. At the beginning of 2024, Lynn became a Legal Director at Asserson. Lynn has advised on a number of large, complex litigations and has a broad commercial practice with an emphasis on defamation and reputation management.

Lynn’s notable cases to date include a pharmaceuticals claim and counterclaim worth £80million, advising on the product defect side of the highest value personal injury dispute ever heard in the English courts (at the time) and advising a very high profile client in litigation against former property managers where adverse publicity was also a major concern.

Lynn achieved a distinction in both her LLM in International Trade Law and her legal practice course. Lynn has also been involved in a number of pro bono legal projects, including working as an Amicus team leader to assist with death penalty appeals in the USA.  In her previous role, Lynn was the co-chair of the firm’s minority ethnic network.

Lynn is an avid gamer in her spare time and attends gaming conventions in the UK and Europe. Lynn is a fluent mandarin speaker and lives in Manchester with her husband and son. Lynn also enjoys cooking (and eating the results!), travelling and reading. She also likes to translate Chinese TV shows and webnovels into English, so her husband can share her interests.

Examples of recent work:
