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.
