Presenter's Biography:

Connie is a Bar-Scholar and was called to the Bar in 2009. She has a broad civil and commercial practice with a particular emphasis on regulatory and competition law matters. She has experience in representing directors of listed companies in disciplinary proceedings of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (both before the Listing Committee and the Listing Appeal Committee). She represented the SFC in the first trial for reversing an IPO (over a HK$1 billion buy-back offer) under section 213 of the Securities and Futures Ordinance: SFC v Hontex International Holdings CACV 128/2012 & HCMP630/2010.

Since 2016, she has been appointed to the Competition Commission's Panel of External Counsel. She represented one of the parties in a 4-week trial before the Competition Tribunal: Competition Commission v W. Hing Construction Company Limited & Ors, the first case on market sharing and price fixing [2019] 3 HKLRD 46, as well as determination of penalty in Hong Kong: [2020] 2 HKLRD 1229. See also: [2018] 5 HKLRD 437. She is also representing two parties in Competition Commission v T.H Lee Book Company Limited & Ors CTEA 2/2020, an enforcement action against alleged price fixing and bid-rigging involving textbooks for secondary schools in Hong Kong.

In September 2018, 2019 and 2021, Connie was appointed to sit as a Deputy District Judge. In September 2020, she was appointed to sit as a Temporary Deputy Registrar of the High Court. She also sits as an arbitrator in both administered and ad hoc arbitrations. Currently, she serves on 6 administrative and quasi-judicial boards and tribunals.

Tommy has handled cases concerning a wide range of areas, including land, trusts, probate, family, intellectual property, competition, employment, company, insolvency, bankruptcy, banking, money lender and general commercial matters. He is regularly instructed to appear in interlocutory applications, including applications for urgent injunctions and orders as sole advocate. He has also rendered Chinese opinions on Hong Kong laws for use in the People's Courts in Mainland China.

Tommy's notable cases include two milestone decisions in insolvency law: Re CW Advanced Technologies Ltd [2018] 3 HKLRD 552 (as amicus curiae, on issues to consider for common law recognition and assistance of a moratorium granted by a foreign Court, led by Dr William Wong SC) and Re CEFC Shanghai International Group Ltd [2020] 1 HKLRD 676 (the first application to Hong Kong Court for recognition of liquidation in Mainland China and cross-border insolvency assistance at common law, with Mr Look-Chan Ho). Further, he represented one of the parties in a 4-week trial before the Competition Tribunal: Competition Commission v W Hing Construction Co Ltd and Others [2020] 2 HKLRD 1229; [2019] 3 HKLRD 46; [2018] 5 HKLRD 437 (the pioneering case on market sharing, price fixing and determination of penalty in Hong Kong, with Ms Connie Lee).

Alongside his practice, Tommy routinely gives seminars on recent developments in civil and commercial laws. He is also a part-time lecturer at the University of Hong Kong, and his teaching in land law, conveyancing, commercial law and legal research & writing was recognised by the Faculty of Law's Outstanding Teaching Award in 2020.
