Tanner De Witt welcomes 2016 intake of trainees across core practice areasSep262016
This September we welcome three new lawyers to join our 2016 trainee programme. Tara Chan, Kevin Siu and Hayley Hui were selected from a strong pool of candidates to complete their two year training programme under the guidance of the Tanner De Witt team in order to qualify as Hong Kong solicitors in 2018.
Canadian born Tara Chan graduated from McGill University before moving to Hong Kong to earn her JD and PCLL from the City University of Hong Kong. During this time Tara had the opportunity to study European Competition Law at University College, Oxford University. Tara is a native English and French speaker and also proficient in Spanish using these languages in her frequent travels; she has travelled to all the continents of the world except Antarctica.
Hong Kong born Kevin Siu obtained his Bachelor degrees and PCLL from the University of Hong Kong. A native English and Cantonese speaker, Kevin’s major interest outside of work is Chinese literature. He can read and write poetry and prose in both classical and vernacular Chinese and has a good command of the Confucian classics. When Kevin isn’t immersed in literature he is a keen swimmer.
Joining Tara and Kevin is Hayley Hui who was a classmate of Kevin, also receiving her Bachelor degrees and PCLL from the University of Hong Kong. She is a keen sportswoman having tried her hand at abseiling, rock climbing, wake boarding and skydiving this year. Hayley begins her trainee rotation programme assisting the Family and Private Client Practice; Tara joins the Corporate and Commercial Practice; Kevin supports the Insolvency and Restructuring team.
