Ivan completed his studies in music and law at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2011 and 2015 respectively, and then he served pupillages with Mr. John Marray, Mr. Anthony P.W. Cheung, Mr. James Y.K. Tze and Mr. Poon Siu Bunn. Ivan was called to the Bar in July 2016 and joined Admiralty Chambers in September 2016.
Ivan practises both general civil and criminal litigation, with experience mainly in contractual disputes, criminal law (including prosecution, defence, and appeals), employment, land and trust, and personal injuries. Ivan is willing to take up pro bono work should circumstances arise. Ivan is also an editor, annotator, and case reporter for LexisNexis Hong Kong.
Putting aside legal practice, Ivan used to play the violin and the guqin, and enjoy singing in the choir (if not unprofessionally); and he is now an occasional concert-goer only.
Year of call: 2016
