Appointments as Solicitor Advocates

For the first time in Hong Kong, selected solicitors, fifteen in all, have been appointed as Solicitor Advocates with rights of audience in the High Court of Hong Kong.  Two of our partners, Jonathan Midgley and Geoffrey Booth, have been awarded higher rights of audience.  This means they are able to appear for clients as advocates in all criminal proceedings in the High Court including jury trials.
