Recent case highlights:
Recent case highlights: We defend two defendants facing charges of Conspiracy to Commit Misconduct in Public Office for alleged referral of public hospital patients to their private clinics and disclosing patients’ records without the approval of the Hospital Authority. This is a highly publicised matter particularly in the medical circle in Hong Kong.
