Arthur specialises in both criminal and civil litigation. As his principal area of practice, Arthur has both led and co-ordinated criminal defence teams in successfully-defended criminal cases in all court levels.

His civil and commercial litigation work includes immigration, personal injuries, fraud recovery claims and employment matters. With a remarkable track record, Arthur has successfully handled cases that involve account freezing and recovery. In one notable instance, he retrieved over US$1 million that was defrauded in an email scam. He has also been entrusted with other non-contentious matters such as commercial and contract drafting works.

Arthur is bestowed with extensive experience in court advocacy for both criminal and civil matters at all court levels. He regularly appears before the Magistrates’ Court as solicitor-advocate for mitigation work, and is adept at conducting substantive hearings for interlocutory applications and as well as ex-parte applications for interim injunction in both District Court and High Court.

Having joined BC&C as a Trainee Solicitor in 2016, Arthur’s outstanding growth and contributions were recognised when he was made a Partner in 2024. Concurrently, he is garnered as a Criminal Law Rising Star in the Doyles Guide rankings.

Arthur holds a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Economics from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (2009) and a Master of Science degree in Economics from University College London (2011).
