Hoi Ki Cheung

Hoi Ki Cheung is an associate in Gowling WLG’s Ottawa office. She specializes in Intellectual Property law.

Hoi Ki recently obtained her JD at the University of Ottawa.  During her time at law school, Hoi Ki acted as a representative in the Law and Technology Student Society and was a mentor in the Women’s Legal Mentorship Program. In addition, she acted as a representative for the International Trade Law Students Association.

Prior to law school, Hoi Ki obtained a master’s degree in chemical engineering specializing in biomedical engineering. She worked in collaboration with Kingston General Hospital for her master’s thesis at Queen’s University, and her research was focused on the design and construct of a novel, gel-based scaffold for tissue engineering to create viable soft tissue implants for cancer patients. During her masters, Hoi Ki also created and designed a research protocol for the characterization of cell-seeded scaffold experiments as well as trained and supervised four undergraduate students with their research projects.

During her undergraduate degree at the University of Western Ontario, Hoi Ki was part of a team that won second place in the Chemical Biochemical Engineering 4th Annual Capstone Design Competition. Their project was an eco-friendly process that converted raw waste cooking oil into biodiesel using a heterogeneous, sugar-based catalyst.
