It is with heavy hearts Gilt Chambers announces the death of Dr Gerard “Gerry” McCoy SC on Tuesday 28th April 2020.

To say it is a great loss would be an understatement. Gerry was our guiding force as Head of Chambers, our friend, and our family. It has given us comfort to have read and received so many wonderful tributes about Gerry and the impact he had on the legal profession of Hong Kong. We sincerely thank everyone who has passed on their respects.

The stories we’ve shared about Gerry in the recent days have all had a similar theme, they’ve all talked about his generosity, his righteous fighting spirit, and his larger than life personality. He was one of the good ones, and he is now and will always be missed.

The Chief Justice on 25 March 2020 responded to concerns about the continuing general adjournment of legal proceedings (known as “GAP”) during this public health crisis by foreshadowing the greater use of technology.  The use of technology can prevent both the unnecessary gathering of crowds, and also assist in managing the significant backlog of cases arising from the general adjournment of courts.

We have closely watched the announcements and updates in anticipation of this health crisis inspiring new initiatives that will allow the legal profession to continue to operate during these uncertain times. Though there has been a slow transition towards the use of technology by the judiciary, Gilt Chambers has adapted and embraced new ways of working to ensure we remain available to our colleagues and clients.
