Practice

Charlotte is developing a comprehensive practice with an emphasis on trust and commercial disputes. Her spectrum of civil practice ranges from tortious claims (such as defamation and personal injuries) and land disputes (such as adverse possession and contested co-ownership) to corporate matters including misconducts of directors, breach of fiduciary duties, winding-up and other equitable reliefs.

Charlotte has practical experience in interlocutory applications both as an advocate on her own and as a junior. In Tiger Resort Asia Ltd v Kazuo Okada, she represented the successful applicant company in obtaining proprietary injunctions and bankers’ books orders in aid of equitable tracing relating to a sum of HK$135 million misappropriated by its former director (see [2019] HKCFI 1415, [2019] HKCFI 2665 and [2020] HKCFI 760). In Greater China Appraisal Ltd v Tsang Kang Po [2018] HKCFI 2552, she represented for the employer in successfully obtaining an injunction restraining its former employees from conducting acts in breach of confidence and duty of fidelity. Recently, in Universal Entertainment Corporation v Kazuo Okada [2020] HKCFI 630, Charlotte represented the successful applicants in obtaining an injunction as a stop-gap measure due to the unusual circumstances amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Charlotte has also appeared for civil trials. In Mak Cheung Ching v Wong Mei Fong [2020] HKCFI 2488, she conducted the trial as an advocate on her own for the defendants in successfully defending against claims for malicious falsehood and procuring breach of contract. In Chong Tao Boon Vincent v Wong Raymond Fook Lam [2019] HKCFI 2556, she represented the defendant in successfully defending against a claim for breach of trust.

For her criminal practice, Charlotte has acted for both the prosecution and the defence. In HKSAR v Ngai Yiu Ching [2018] HKCFI 2792, she appeared for the prosecution in a murder trial involving issues of self-defence, provocation and unlawful act manslaughter. In HKSAR v Tse Tin [2020] HKDC 727, she represented the defendant in successfully defending against one of the two charges of fraud. In HKSAR v Lam Tsz Ho [2020] HKDC 394, she represented the defendant in successfully defending against a charge of riot.

Administrative law is another practice area which Charlotte is keen to explore. In F v Superintendent of Tuen Mun Children and Juvenile Home [2019] HKCFI 2235, she represented the successful applicant in obtaining leave to apply for judicial review and interim relief that the minor detainee be immediately released from the juvenile home.

Charlotte accepts instructions for both advocacy and advisory works and for both civil and criminal matters. She is capable of providing advice, writing submissions and conducting hearings in both English and Chinese. She also provides regular pro bono legal advice through the Duty Lawyers Service.
