“For many ‘the pre-eminent set in Hong Kong for commercial disputes’” (Legal 500, 2021)
We are delighted to welcome Ng Jern-Fei QC to Temple Chambers as an arbitrator member.
Jern-Fei was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2002 and was appointed Queen’s Counsel there in 2018. He has experience sitting as presiding arbitrator, co-arbitrator or sole arbitrator in over 30 cases, encompassing ad hoc arbitrations as well as those conducted pursuant to the arbitration rules of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC).
In addition to his practice as arbitrator and counsel, Jern-Fei is a member of the HKIAC’s Proceedings Committee, a member of the board of directors of Maxwell Chambers in Singapore as well as a member of the Singapore Academy of Law’s Professional Affairs Committee and the head of its foreign lawyers’ chapter.
Jern-Fei will develop his growing practice as arbitrator from Temple Chambers but continue to maintain his counsel practice from his London set of chambers. In addition to being called to the English Bar, he is also admitted to the Bar of the British Virgin Islands and also has experience appearing before the courts of the Cayman Islands.
Temple Chambers is pleased to welcome four new tenants, Zenith Chan, John Cheung, John Chan and Adrian Kwan.
We are pleased to announce that City University of Hong Kong will confer an honorary doctoral degree on Rimsky Yuen Kwok-keung SC, citing his significant contribution to the well-being of society in his former role as Secretary for Justice of the HKSAR Government and in promoting Hong Kong as an international dispute resolution and legal services centre in the Asia-Pacific region, amongst other roles.
