Solicitor Tang Kwok Leung of Hong Kong; ethical goblin

 

The Law Society of Hong Kong presented Tang Kwok Leung with a law license in 1997 after he graduated from the University of Hong Kong School of Law.

 

The Law Society Disciplinary Counsel found Tang Kwok Leung guilty of engaging in the following misconduct.

  • Failed to advise client of possible conflict of interest between said client and a co-defendant in a High Court case in which he acted for both defendants
  • Compromised himself by continuing to act for two clients whereby he could not act properly by advising one of the clients to seek indemnity from a co-defendant who was his other client in a personal injuries action
  • Failed to disclose to client the advice of a counsel concerning the client’s case
  • Made offer to settle client’s claim with the insurer without having first obtained the authority from the client
  • Made misrepresentation [lied] to client that an offer of HK$160,000 was made by the insurer to settle a 3rd party claim
  • Failed to keep client informed of status of case

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Disciplinary Board punished Tang Kwok Leung by gifting him with a complimentary censure and fined HK$153,00.00 ($19,546.00 US) and assessed costs of HK$210,700.00 ($26,719.00).

 

As we speak (ca. November 2019), Tang Kwok Leung practices with Tang Lee & Co. LLP at 573 Nathan Road in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
