  • Some of the responses to this article seem to display an element of disdain towards the legal profession. I wonder why that is the case and more importantly, what can we do change this opinion.

  • He has survived, like many at CC, for years under the one rule for them and another rule for us on a whole range of so called " personal matters ", but this time it will be difficult to hide and just shuffle him off somewhere else, which is what they did when they sent him to Hong Kong in the first place

  • A Jaguar sports car? How cliche - he should be fired for lack of creativity in choice of automobile.

    To LawMap - the reason that 'disdain' is the case is that many lawyers are moral pygmies. Law is no longer a profession - it is a business where sales matters, and little else. Shakespeare would now say; 'the first thing we do is co-opt all of the lawyers, that should be easy.'

    Maybe we should have an index what level of business will allow you to get away with what level of miscreant behaviour. How much business to get away with a drunk driving charge? Anyone want to start bidding?

  • Striking, isn't it, that CC doesn't regard him as important enough to need a driver?

  • Well at least he hasn't yet blamed his questionable behaviour on mental instability and gotten away with his crime a la Amina Bokhary.

  • This was a typical behaviour of English expects overseas! Drunk and break the law.

  • Public transport in HK is cheap and plentyful. I am afraid this shows arrogance on a grand scale. A senior partner whose earnings must be stratospheric can easily afford a taxi or even a driver. Driving after a hooley is just unacceptable which ever you lok at it. It may be a personal matter right now but if he gets convicted and loses his practicing cert, I think it will be a firm matter then as he wont be able to earn fees and then who would be stumping up for the large expat deal he is likely to be on (house, car, schools, flights, etc etc).
