She joined Denis Chang’s Chambers in 2018 upon completion of her pupillage with Mr Hectar Pun SC, Mr Derek Chan SC, Ms Catherine Wong, Mr Vincent Lung, Mr Earl Deng.

Allison specialises in competition law.  In her first year of practice, she represented one of the Respondents in the second enforcement action before the Competition Tribunal of Hong Kong (“CT”): Competition Commission v W Hing Construction Co Ltd & Ors [2019] 3 HKLRD 46; [2020] 3 HKC 565.  She (as sole advocate in the evidence stage; led by Hectar Pun SC and with Anson Wong Yu Yat in closing submissions) attended a 17-day trial involving over 30 factual witnesses and 3 expert witnesses.  Allison was also instructed to represent two of the Respondents in the first ever application for disposal of proceedings by consent before the CT and successfully persuaded the CT to adopt the Carecraft procedure in proceedings under the Competition Ordinance (Cap. 619): Competition Commission v Kam Kwong Engineering Company Ltd & Ors [2020] HKCT 3.

Allison is also developing her practice in public and administrative law.  Allison (led by Gladys Li SC, Johannes Chan SC, together with Earl Deng, Jeffrey Tam and Geoffrey Yeung) represents the 24 Legislative Councillor applicants in the landmark judicial review application challenging the constitutionality of the Emergency Regulations Ordinance (Cap. 241) and the Prohibition of Face Covering Regulation (Cap. 241K), of which the appeal before the Court of Final Appeal will be heard on 24 and 25 November 2020: Kwok Wing Hang & Ors v Chief Executive in Council & Anor [2020] HKCA 837; [2020] HKCA 557; [2020] HKCA 192; [2019] HKCA 1396; [2020] 1 HKLRD 1; [2019] 5 HKLRD 173.
