Administrative and Public Law

This area of the law principally involves legal challenges to decisions of public bodies and continues to develop at a rapid pace given that the Hong Kong SAR has its own written constitution, the Basic Law.

DVC houses an ex-Attorney General, an ex-Solicitor General and prominent members of the former Attorney General’s Chambers, and many members have been involved in leading administrative and public law cases, such as the Link REIT litigation and a recent appeal to the Court of Final Appeal involving important questions of state immunity.

Members are also regularly involved in commercial judicial reviews, including acting for the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and in various public inquiries.
