Commercial Dispute Resolution - China
Band 2

Barrie Barlow SC of Des Voeux Chambers is identified by interviewees both as "one of the busiest silks in Hong Kong" and as "a fearless advocate" whose "willingness to fight his client's corner" constitutes his "greatest strength." His careful preparation, determination "to leave no stone unturned" and expert trial craft are all also singled out for specific praise. Active across the commercial and public law spectrum, and in taxation and real property cases, he appeared for one of the respondents in The Liquidator of Wing Fai Construction v Yip Kwong Robert and Others, a High Court case which helped clarify the law concerning misfeasance claims against the directors of liquidated companies.
