He appeared in Tian Tian v Cao Ji  HKDC 197, where he successfully applied for a Mareva injunction in relation to cyber-fraud, and in 陳基裘 v. 香港政府警務處  HKCFI 2882 and Yeung Tsz Chun v. Commissioner of Police  HKCFI 2882, where the Court held that the failure of the police to display unique identification numbers violated the Hong Kong Bill of Rights (led by Martin Lee SC and with Jeffrey Tam).
