KM Liew

Of Counsel

KM Liew regularly represents clients in Greater China and other regions in resolving complex, cross-border commercial issues.

KM has acted in numerous High Court litigations and enforcement proceedings in Hong Kong, and has handled a spectrum of international commercial arbitrations (including those conducted under the UNCITRAL, ICC and HKIAC Administered Arbitration Rules).

Another principal area of KM’s practice is adversarial compliance and regulatory work.

He also has experience in other investigatory procedures, including those involving financial institutions and corporate governance issues.

In addition, KM has three years of focused practice in construction law, acting primarily for contractors involved in final account disputes for projects in Hong Kong and Macau. He has also served as a panel lawyer of a professional indemnity fund in Hong Kong.
