Stephen is our Senior Partner who started his legal career in 1973 in Hong Kong, following graduation from King’s College. He left Hong Kong as Head of Litigation Department of a legal firm there and moved to England to read Law at the University of the West of England, Bristol. He served his articles in a local firm in Bristol and was admitted as a Solicitor in 1982.
He worked for several firms before starting his legal practice in 1985, initially as Stephen Chung & Co and then Chung & Platt. From 1st April 2013, he changed the firm’s name to Chung & Co, following formation of a partnership with his son, Jonathan.
Stephen finds interest in all aspects of law, particularly commercial and residential property transactions, landlord and tenant issues, immigration and appeals, planning law, wills and probate, divorce and Magistrates Court and Tribunal work. He is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese and is the legal advisor to many organisations. His vast experience in law forms the backbone to his past and present legal practices.
Jonathan completed his secondary education at William Hulme’s Grammar School, Manchester. He obtained his Law degree from the University of Liverpool in 2006. Having worked for several law firms, he joined force with his father, Stephen Chung, and completed his training in 2011. In July 2011, he was admitted as a Solicitor and continued working along with his father. From 1st April 2013, he became his partner and together they trade under Chung &Co.
Jonathan shares the same interest in different legal matters and is the inspiration of the new firm. He is equally determined to maintain and improve the reputation of the firm. He can speak Cantonese and is working towards improving his Mandarin.
