Edward, a regular editor of the Hong Kong Civil Procedure (“White Book”), has once again made a remarkable contribution to the book this year, collaborating with Arthur Wan, his mini pupil.
In the chapter they have worked on – “𝗘𝘅𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗜𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗺𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗖𝗼𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗣𝗿𝗲-𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗗𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗔𝗽𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀: 𝗔 𝗕𝗮𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗝𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗲?” – they discussed the current landscape of pre-trial discovery applications and raise pivotal questions surrounding the disproportionate burden of indemnity costs. They examined that the current approach, which places a heavy emphasis on indemnity costs in such applications, may unintentionally prevent access to justice for plaintiffs and create an imbalance in the legal field.
Through thorough research and compelling case studies, Edward and Arthur have collectively showcased their profound understanding of the law and demonstrated a steadfast commitment to advancing the legal profession. We believe that Edward's guidance and mentorship have nurtured Arthur by allowing him to flourish and contribute meaningfully to this landmark publication in the industry.
