I have over 35 years' experience of construction and engineering law in connection with projects (private, public sector and privatisation) in Hong Kong and in almost all countries in the Asia Pacific region. My practise primarily involves arbitration of construction disputes, having been involved in over 250 cases, often as advocate. However he deals with both contentious and non-contentious matters and is Legal Advisor to the Hong Kong Construction Association.

I have regularly advised a wide range of clients and industry participants from the public and private sectors and is experienced in all forms of dispute resolution including court, arbitration, mediation and adjudication including having acted as adjudicator in a number of disputes arising out of the construction of the Hong Kong International Airport. I have advised the Hong Kong Government on implementation of past legislation and was one of the drafters of the Arbitration Ordinance Cap 609.

I have also been advisor to the Hong Kong Construction Association (“HKCA”) for 30 years and as such has been instrumental in the lobbying of law reform in Hong Kong, in particular I were involved in drafting the Hong Kong Arbitration Ordinance that was enacted in 2011 and were recently involved in helping to redraft the Domestic Arbitration Rules of the HKIAC. I have also lobbied the Hong Kong Government for many years to enact security of payment legislation and is now involved in helping with the drafting of that legislation.
