Clark Wang is one of the first batches of talents recruited by the University of Hong Kong from top PRC universities under the Jockey Club Scholarship Programme following the handover of Hong Kong in 1997.
As a native mandarin speaker with dual education and qualification in both mainland PRC and Hong Kong, Clark possesses the perfect skillset to solve disputes with PRC elements and has for that reason developed a substantial practice in cross-border litigation and arbitration in areas such as contractual disputes, corporate shareholders’ disputes, company matters, securities law and family matters. Clark understands the legal and commercial reality of both jurisdictions therefore is able to identify and present the cases of his PRC clients to Hong Kong Courts and Tribunals in the proper PRC context and background. Conversely, he is also able to explain Hong Kong law to his PRC clients as well as the PRC Courts and Tribunals in a simple and straightforward manner.
Due to his skills and expertise, he has had the honour to be invited to act as an amicus curiae to advise the Court of Appeal and to represent and advise the Hong Kong government and public bodies including the Securities and Futures Commission in PRC related cases.
Clark is also experienced in other areas such as trust, insurance, land, and probate matters.
Clark is “excellent in understanding the client’s commercial goals and provides thoughtful strategic advice” (The Legal 500 2022), “analytical, diligent and thorough in his research and preparation” (The Legal 500 2023).
