Members of Denis Chang’s Chambers recognised for pro bono legal services to the community
Denis Chang’s Chambers is pleased to announce that our Members Matthew Tse, Albert Wan, Andrew Lau and Abigail Liu have been recognised for their pro bono work under the Government’s 2018-20 Recognition Scheme for Provision of Pro Bono Legal Services (the “Recognition Scheme”).
All four Members received awards for the pro bono legal services they performed within the two-year period from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2020.
Andrew Lau earned the Special Award by virtue of having contributed over 50 hours of pro bono services, while Matthew Tse, Albert Wan and Abigail Liu each received the Individual Award for providing at least 30 hours of pro bono services.
Members of Denis Chang’s Chambers are committed to pro bono work, often volunteering their time and expertise without charge for parties who would otherwise be unable to access legal assistance.
