Presenter's Profile:
Mr. Robert S.K. Lee, S.C.

Mr. Robert S.K. Lee, S.C., was called to the Hong Kong Bar in 1988.  He joined the then Attorney General's Chambers (later the Department of Justice) as Crown Counsel.  He specializes in criminal law, covering criminal cases at all levels of Hong Kong courts with special focus on commercial and financial crimes, criminal appeals, corruption, "money laundering", restraint and confiscation proceedings, and aspects of public law.  In 2008, he was appointed Senior Counsel by the Chief Justice.  In 2011, he retired from the Department as Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, and later entered private practice.  Back in the nineties, he has been seconded to the Monetary Authority of Hong Kong as an in-house legal advisor.  He published the loose-leaf "Monetary and Banking Laws of Hong Kong" and has since maintained an interest in financial laws.  He values critical and jurisprudential analysis in legal cases, having been much inspired by the critical spirit of the late British philosopher, Sir Karl Popper.
