Star Anise’s General Counsel elected to the Hong Kong Law Society Council
Star Anise is delighted to announce that our General Counsel, Davyd Wong, has been elected to the Law Society Council. Our warm congratulations extend to the other candidates who have been elected alongside with our General Counsel.
The Council is a governing body of the Law Society that consists of twenty council members, two Vice Presidents and one President, all of whom are volunteers. The function of the Council is to regulate the legal profession and be the voice of Hong Kong solicitors.
During the Council election in 2020, five of the twenty Council seats were available to be filled, with ten candidates competing. All members of the Law Society of Hong Kong are eligible to vote and can vote for up to five candidates each. The voting took place at the Annual General Meeting held on 28 May 2020.
"I'm honored and privileged to be elected, and look forward to serving. The real work begins now." - Davyd Wong, General Counsel
We congratulate the elected members once again and are looking forward to them making a positive impact on the legal system in Hong Kong.
