Parkside Chambers:

Parkside Chambers was originally founded in 1983 by 4 civil and commercial barristers.  Firstly in the Diamond Exchange Building and then BCC House, in August 1991 chambers moved to Pacific Place, adjacent to the High Court.

Over the last 2 decades, chambers’ membership and standing has grown steadily.  We currently house counsel of recognised authority in criminal and family law as well as in all aspects of civil and commercial practice.  Members have also made significant contributions to the development of administrative and human rights law in Hong Kong.

A number of our members also enjoy strong reputations for their leading practice in arbitration and mediation, particularly in construction and family matters.  Members’ areas of expertise can be seen in Practice Areas.

Parkside Chambers has enjoyed objective recognition as one of only 3 “leading sets” in Hong Kong in each of the Chambers & Partners Asia directories published over the last 4 years.
