Practice profile

Alan joined Chambers in September 2018 and has since developed a well-established practice dealing with criminal and arbitration cases.

Prior to joining Chambers, Alan acquired a great deal of hands-on experience dealing with criminal trials and magistracy appeals concerning industrial summons, trafficking and/or possession of dangerous drugs, road traffic offences including careless and dangerous driving, indecent assault, burglary, conspiracy to blackmail as well as criminal damage. Moreover, he acquired experience in challenging the admissibility of police and confession statements and in giving advice on the matter of criminal sanctions.

In 2017, Alan was invited by the Hong Kong Shue Yan University to speak as a guest lecturer, discussing the implications of the cases of Carson Yeung, Pang Hung Fai and Yan Suiling towards the money laundering framework in Hong Kong. Alan is one of the examiners of the mooting module of the Shue Yan University.

Aside from criminal practice, Alan is one of a select few practitioners in his field who also possess extensive experience of dealing with arbitration cases for three years. He also co-authored practitioners’ textbooks on arbitration law, subsequently published by LexisNexis and Sweet & Maxwell respectively. Alan is now a part-time tutor of the City University of Hong Kong of the Master of Laws programme, specialising in Arbitration and Dispute Resolution.

Alan is fluent in Cantonese, English, Mandarin.
