DVC has a growing presence in the area of criminal law, with a particular focus on white collar crime. This sector is spearheaded by experienced criminal law practitioner Joseph Tse SC. DVC provides quality legal representation in white collar and corporate criminal law practice.
Mr. Tse enjoyed a mixed practice for over 10 years before he became totally dedicated to criminal litigation where his interest lies. He is experienced in all aspects of the criminal law, in both trials and appeals, from hardcore crimes to complex white collar crimes. Even as a senior junior counsel he had established for himself a reputation as a fearless advocate for his clients. As a senior counsel, his practice has remained focused mainly on white collar crimes, crimes with a commercial background or context, corruption offences, and cases where the defendants include professionals, businessmen, celebrities, government servants and politicians.
