Slaughter and May’s Asia competition practice head has been fined after a fatal driving accident.
Partner Natalie Yeung has been handed a HK$3000 (£320) fine for careless driving which resulted in the death of a pedestrian in October 2021, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
According to local press reports, the pedestrian was crossing Shek O Road when she was hit by Yeung’s car and later died in hospital at Pamela Youde Nethersole hospital.
Yeung joined the firm in 2005 and was promoted to partner in 2017. Three years later she was appointed to the firm’s partnership board.
Yeung pleaded guilty and was fined in the South Eastern District Magistrates Court in July, and was also ordered to take a driving safety course within three months.
The news was first reported by Roll on Friday.
