My practice covers a broad spectrum of advisory and advocacy work in 3 main areas : commercial litigation, company and financial services work, and tax and chancery matters. I also give expert opinions from time to time on Hong Kong law for use in overseas courts and tribunals.
Over the past 20 years, my practice has included appearing and advising in several heavy commercial and company matters, notably in the Court of Final Appeal in ADS v. Wheelock Marden & Others (2000) 3 HKCFAR 70, after one of Hong Kong’s longest civil trials lasting 14 months. Over the years, I have worked with many leading Silks from London and Hong Kong in a wide variety of matters including in my main practice areas above.
From 1988 to date, I have been and am a Member of Des Voeux Chambers, previously known as Neil Kaplan Q.C.’s Chambers before 1990.
“Chua Guan-Hock, S.C. of Des Voeux Chambers is commended by sources for his effective handling of matters, … being “very helpful, thorough and measured” in his approach. He is active across a broad range of corporate, commercial, and financial issues.”

"Chua Guan-Hock SC of Des Voeux Chambers works on a wide range of matters including tax and shareholder disputes. He is described as a "very diligent and good advocate," one source noting that "he probably looks at details more than any other practitioner in Hong Kong.""
