Adrian commenced full practice in 2020 following the completion of his pupillage under the supervision of Victor Dawes SC, Norman Nip (now Norman Nip SC), Jonathan Wong (now HHJ Jonathan Wong), Isaac Chan and Benson Tsoi. He is developing a broad civil practice, having appeared in all levels of the Hong Kong courts, either as sole counsel or a led junior.
His recent highlights include acting for the Employees Compensation Assistance Fund Board in its appeal to the Court of Final Appeal in Fong Chak Kwan v Ascentic Ltd on a question involving the interpretation of the tort jurisdictional ‘gateway’, and for the Competition Commission in its first enforcement proceedings adopting the Carecraft procedure in a ‘hybrid settlement’ case in Kam Kwong Engineering Co Ltd.
Prior to joining the Bar, Adrian qualified as a solicitor after having trained with an international law firm. He obtained his LLB and PCLL from the University of Hong Kong, and further obtained an LLM with distinction from the London School of Economics (placing in the top 10% of his cohort) and an LLM with first class honours from the University of Cambridge (ranking 4th in his cohort with first class grades in all subjects).
Adrian was awarded the Middle Temple Advocacy Scholarship in 2019.
