DVC is widely recognised as one of the leading commercial sets of chambers in town. A former member sat as the Judge in charge of the Commercial Court for many years, and most of our members are well equipped to handle complicated commercial litigation and arbitration on short notice. Clients include public and private companies, partnerships and individuals across a wide range of sectors both within Hong Kong and internationally. Specific areas of expertise include agency and distributorship disputes, banking and financial services, commercial arrangements and contracts, competition, employment, international trade, sale and carriage of goods, and telecommunications.
What the directories say:
One of DVC's members is noted for being "one of the best all-around Silks in Hong Kong," while peers recognise him as a "tenacious advocate" who "takes on the hard cases" and who has been "recommended for turning a losing case into a winning one."

One of our members has stood out for his "formidable courtroom skills and very strong commercial brain," whilst another has achieved distinction for "being able to handle pretty much anything in the commercial sphere having recently represented the University of Hong Kong in a matter involving a press freedom issue. Described as a "brilliant, persuasive and sound advocate" a Silk acquired acclaim for successfully appearing for the plaintiff in a case relating to a Ponzi scheme operated by Bernard Madoff. Yet another Silk has gained recognition for an "incredible work ethic" with the added qualities of being "clever, user-friendly and very approachable."
