It’s a distraction from the fact that Herbies is imploding. Reply Link Anonymous 30 November 2011 at 16:09 Bored @ 25th Nov. 0.56 am. Imploding ? ….. get a life. GJL is (and will remain) a first class disputes lawyer and one of the best in Hk. Also very smart and client-focused. HS disputes is in v safe hands – hence his appointment. This appointment was long in the making for anyone who knows the firm in HK since he was made up in 2002. And NO – I am not a Herbies’ lawyer and am not related. In fact, am a competitor. Most of us wish him well. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
