Practice profile

Lisa joined Chambers in 2020 after completion of pupillage with Mr. M. K. Wong S.C., Mr. Tim Wong, Mr. Valentine Yim, Mr. Tony Ko, Mr. Peter Duncan S.C., and Ms. Catherine Wong.

Lisa is developing a broad criminal and civil practice and has experience in matters spanning a wide spectrum of practice areas.  She has appeared both in her own right and as a led junior in Magistrates’ Courts, District Court and High Court.

Lisa has handled a wide range of criminal matters, with experience in areas such as misconduct in public office, white-collar crimes including money laundering and corruption, fraud, sexual offences, assault and wounding offences, criminal damage, general and serious road traffic offences (including dangerous driving causing death), drug-related offences and immigration offences.  She has also been instructed to attend legal visits at police stations, ICAC, Immigration Department and Labour Department.

In her first year of practice, Lisa has been led by Mr. M. K. Wong S.C. (and with Mr. Ronny Leung) to act for a defendant in an 85-day trial in the District Court regarding the offence of misconduct in public office committed by three public eye doctors in Caritas Medical Centre (HKSAR v Yau Shing Kin & Others DCCC 1092/2018).  The Defendant was acquitted of all three charges.

On the civil side, Lisa has experience in handling contractual disputes, trusts, land, contentious probate, and matrimonial cases. She is regularly instructed to appear in various interlocutory applications, including interlocutory injunctions and Mareva injunctions. Her recent case includes a successful application for a Mareva injunction in the sum of around HKD$15 million against a debtor in the Court of First Instance and a summary judgment entered in the same amount subsequently (with Mr. Roy Lau) (Yung Wai Man v Leung Kwok Pong [2020] HKCFI 2657; [2021] HKCFI 896).

Lisa accepts instructions for both advocacy and advisory work in all areas of practice.
