Solicitor Lai Man Chun of Hong Kong; ethical troll

 

The Law Society of Hong Kong presented Lai Man Chun with a law license in 2002 after he graduated from the University of Hong Kong School of Law.

 

The Law Society Disciplinary Counsel found Lai Man Chun guilty of engaging in the following misconduct.

  • Failed to consult and seek prior approval from the DLA to instruct counsel to attend two hearings in the case
  • Failed to inform the court in a case that counsel had been instructed to attend a scheduled hearing without prior approval of the DLA
  • Improperly instructed counsel to ask for legal aid costs order during a hearing in which the Court ordered that the costs of the hearing be in the cause, with Legal Aid taxation of his client’s costs but with no certificate for counsel
  • Failed to inform his client that the DLA had not assigned counsel to the case or authorized the instructing of counsel for said case
  • Conduct upset the legal aid system
  • Misconduct caused grave concern of the judge in the case
  • Conduct was undesirable in the public image of the profession

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the cheerleaders for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Disciplinary Board punished Paulie by gifting him with a complimentary restriction on his practice for one year, a fine of HK$40,000.00 ($4,110.00 US) and investigative costs of HK$235,096.00 ($30,037.00).

 

As we speak (ca. October 2019), Lai Man Chun practices with Lai M.C.A. Solicitors LLP at 43-59 Queens Road East, Wanchai, Hong, Kong.
