Michael Chan

Partner of Chan Neill Solicitors

Chairman of London Chinatown Lions Club 2012 Dragon Boat Festival 2012
Ex President of London Chinatown Lions Club 2007 / 2008

Michael initially looked to science as a career path having obtained a BSc (HONS) degree in Chemistry from UMIST in 1990. He however felt that the cut and thrust of litigation was more his yearning having initially started at Lovells, Hong Kong working on a large construction arbitration dispute during 1990 – 1991. He returned to the United Kingdom and indeed changed career paths and completed the CPE, LSF and formally qualified as a solicitor in September 1995. His ambition and adversarial skills in litigation quickly made him rise from an assistant solicitor to partnership in 1998 and equity partner status by 2001.

When not working as a Solicitor at his practice (Chan Neill Solicitors), he makes time for charitable causes and strives to make Chinese culture and links in the United Kingdom more prominent. He raised that bar with the advent of the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival which he chaired and helped set up in his year as president of the China Town Lions Club and with the Hong Kong Executive Trade Organisation in 2007 and 2008 respectively. In 2012, he returned to being a Chairman of the Dragon Boat Festival and this event is now a major annual event in the UK Chinese calendar and funds raised go to many needy causes.
