Kevin Leung

Barrister
Grounded in a Princeton Economics education, Kevin combines Ivy League acuity and quantitative acumen with a passion for advocacy in his legal practice.

憑藉其於普林斯頓大學的所學所得,梁家揚大律師能以多元思維及敏銳觸覺處理法律問題。

 

Profile 簡介:

Kevin is developing a mixed practice with a focus on regulatory and criminal matters.  He has advised and represented companies and individuals in matters relating to regulatory investigations and offences, white-collar crime, and serious and general crimes.  On the civil side, he has advised and acted for clients in commercial, probate, matrimonial, land, personal injury, and other tortious matters. 

梁家揚大律師的執業範圍涵蓋刑事、監管及民事三個領域。無論是牽涉公司或個人層面的監管罪行、白領罪行、嚴重及一般罪行,梁大律師均擅長處理。民事方面,梁大律師曾承接關於商業糾紛、遺囑及遺產事宜、婚姻訴訟、土地法、人身傷亡及其他侵權的案件。

 

In addition, having experience of advising on potential criminal liability in numerous civil (e.g. commercial and matrimonial) disputes, as well as how such liability affects subsequent litigation strategies, Kevin welcomes the challenge of navigating situations where criminal and civil concerns are inextricably intertwined.

另外,梁大律師給予法律意見的範圍亦包括從民事糾紛(例如商業或婚姻訴訟)衍生的刑責問題,以及如何制訂能顧及該等問題的訴訟策略。

 

On other engagements, Kevin is a part-time lecturer (non-clinical) for the Faculty of Law at the University of Hong Kong, and a contributor to the Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong.

其他職責方面,梁大律師有擔任香港大學法律學院的客席講師,亦有參與修訂 The Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong。
