Denis Chang’s Chambers (“DCC”) was established in 1978 by a young Denis Chang in Prince’s Building directly across from the Old Supreme Court, three years before he took silk and joined the ranks of the distinguished leaders of the practising Bar.
True to Denis’s vision, DCC is today recognised as a modern and progressive set committed to legal excellence, justice, and the rule of law. We currently have 48 members including 5 silks and are in a growth pattern. Our strong portfolio of barristers has collectively and individually contributed not only to the development of DCC, but also towards the legal fabric of the Common Law world and the jurisprudence of One Country Two Systems.
Over the past decades DCC has nurtured many talents, some of whom have taken silk while others have gone on to join the judiciary or academia. Our members comprise generalists as well as specialists in a wide spectrum of disciplines that encompass (in alphabetical order): Administrative and Constitutional Law (including Human Rights), Arbitration and Mediation, Chinese Customary Law, Commercial Law, Company Law, Competition Law, Criminal Law, Family Law, Insolvency Law and Restructuring, Insurance Law, Land and Property Law, Personal Injuries, Probate and Administration, Public and Private International Law, Tax Law, Tort Law and Trust and Equity.
Today we occupy about 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-art premises at One Lippo Centre, on the entire 9th floor (with an Annex on the 43rd Floor), directly opposite the High Court. In line with modern insights and in the best traditions of the Bar we continue our efforts to nurture young talents at DCC through our “Catalyst” programme which includes new infrastructure, resources, and an internal understudy programme to accommodate pupils who meet Chambers’ standards of excellence in intellectual ability, advocacy and professional ethics.
As DCC enters its fifth decade we remain committed to the ideals of upholding the rule of law without fear or favour and with integrity and conviction.
