Sabrina Ho “Sabrina is a joy to work with,” and she is described as a “knowledgeable, approachable, hard-working and responsive” counsel with “a knack for making lay clients feel at ease.” She is also “mindful of details” and canvasses acclaim for her “excellent people skills: she is everything you want from a junior: she’s very meticulous, thorough and works well in a team.”

Sabrina Ho of Des Voeux Chambers stands out for her ability to establish a rapport with all participants in the legal process, one source identifying her as a "very diligent junior, trusted by many of the senior members of the Bar community," while another notes that "she is well liked by all solicitors for her handling of clients, while both clients and the Bench find her friendly and respectable." Nor are interviewees slow to praise her "succinct and clear" court presentation, more than one emphasising her flair for "skilful cross-examination." Most active in the commercial, company and insurance spheres, she is increasingly seen in a sole or leading advocate role.

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.
