Jeevan Hingorani    㷫過辣雞

Jeevan Hingorani is the founder and head of Pacific Chambers. He is vastly experienced in both criminal and civil work, having been called to the Bar in England (1978), the BVI (1981) and Hong Kong (1982).

He was conferred his Chinese name "㷫過辣雞" by those he represented for the awesome cross examination he conducted in criminal cases.

After 12 years at the criminal bar, during which he was involved with numerous high profile cases including murder and commercial fraud, a number of which went to appeal at the Privy Council, he moved to civil practice where he has been firmly entrenched for over 27 years. Jeevan is the consummate cross-examiner and focuses on commercial litigation, company law, trusts, probate and partnership disputes. He has also resumed his criminal practice, and now regularly accepts instructions for both prosecution and defence work.
