The members of Pacific Chambers were pleased to welcome on 1 December, new members Warren Suen and Tony Lo.
Warren Suen is a chartered architect, having completed his Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies at the University of Hong Kong in 2011 and a Master of Architecture at the University of Manchester in 2014. He commenced to study Law in 2016, completing his JD at the City University in 2018, his PCLL at the same university in 2019, and a Master of Laws in Conflict Law and International Arbitration at the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2020.
In 2020 Warren was the recipient of a Society of Construction Law Scholarship.
Upon his return from London Warren undertook pupillage with Simon Wong, Calvin Cheuk, Benny Lo and Jeffrey Tam.
Warren is currently a member of the Hong Kong Institute of Architects and the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors Joint Dispute Resolution Committee, which manages the admissions and appointments of Arbitrators on behalf of the two institutes.
Whilst at Law School Warren was heavily involved in mooting, representing his universities at several international moots. He is also an accomplished musician, his instrument of choice being the trombone.
Whilst Warren is open to receiving instructions in all types of cases, having regard to his background he expects that much of his work will be in building and construction cases.
Tony Lo completed a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Communications and a minor in Publishing at the Simon Fraser University in 2013. Whilst studying and for several years after he graduated, Tony worked in various positions for Federal Express in Canada.
He completed his JD at City University in 2018, his PCLL at the same university in 2019, and in 2020 he completed a Master of Laws specializing in Competition Law at Kings College, London.
Whilst studying in Hong Kong Tony interned at Pacific Chambers with Holden Slutsky.
Like Warren, during his studies Tony was also involved in mooting and during his time in London was a member of the King’s College Bar and Mooting Society.
Upon his return from London Tony undertook pupillage with Azan Marwah, Jeffrey Li, Clement Lau and Colin Wright.
He is a keen tennis player and also plays golf.
Although Tony has an interest in ADR, which he studied as an elective at City University, he hopes initially to develop a general practice.
We warmly welcome both our new members.
Sadly, on 30 November long standing members David Boyton, Elizabeth Herbert and Belinda Ma, as well as Peggy Pao, left Pacific Chambers. We take this opportunity to wish them well in their future careers.
