SW partner Ms. Catherine Por, partner Ms. Wendy Lam, consultant Ms. Sherlynn Chan and associate Ms. Stella Cheng together with other legal professionals attended the seminar on “Private Adjudication of Financial Disputes in Family Cases” on 27 January 2015. The response of the event was overwhelming and had been oversubscribed.
To familiarise practitioners with the new Practice Direction SL 9, the Academy of Law and Hong Kong Bar Association invited the Honorable Mr. Justice Lam, Vice-President of the Court of Appeal of the High Court and Her Honour Judge Bebe Chu, Deputy Judge of the Court of First Instance of the High Court to give a talk on the salient features of the pilot scheme for private adjudication of financial disputes in Matrimonial and Family Proceedings under the new Practice Direction and other practical issues arising from it. This Private Financial Adjudication will be a new mode of ADR and is intended to be quicker and more flexible than usual court proceedings.
Please contact our Catherine Por or Wendy Lam for any enquiries or further information about this event.
