Presenter's Biography:

Ken To completed his legal studies (BA and MA) at the University of Cambridge, and was a recipient of the Cambridge Overseas Trust Scholarship and Chevening Scholarship.

Ken's practice predominantly covers probate and trust, mental incapacity, arbitration and general commercial. He acts as counsel in international and domestic arbitrations, acts as a mediator in cross border disputes and sits as an arbitrator.

Ken is a fellow of the Hong Kong Institute of Arbitration, and has been regularly appointed an arbitrator in both international and domestic arbitrations, both as the sole arbitrator or a co-arbitrator in an arbitral tribunal. He is also regularly instructed as a counsel in arbitration proceedings.

Pak Hei read law at the University of Hong Kong and King's College London under their dual-degree programme. After graduating with first class honours for both degrees, he completed an LLM at University College London, specialising in Maritime Law.

Pak Hei joined Sir Oswald Cheung's Chambers in 2019 and is developing a broad civil practice. He is also a part-time lecturer at the University of Hong Kong, teaching Contract law.

Part II of the Mental Health Ordinance (Cap 136) ("the MHO") concerns the management of property and affairs of mentally incapacitated persons ("MIP"). Upon application, the court has power to conduct an inquiry as to whether a person is incapable, by reason of mental incapacity, of managing and administering his property and affairs. Such an inquiry involves a two-stage process: 1) the initial stage where directions are sought from the court; and 2) the stage where the actual inquiry takes place. If the court is satisfied that the person is a MIP, it may appoint a committee of the estate to manage it on his behalf.

This seminar will provide an overview on the practice and procedure for applications under Part II of the MHO. A Part II application can be broadly divided into three stages, namely: 1) pre-inquiry; 2) inquiry and 3) post-inquiry. A range of issues arising out of these three stages will be addressed. For instance, how will the court decide whether a committee should be appointed to manage a MIP's property and affairs? Who should be appointed? The matter does not end with the appointment of a committee - How does the Court supervise the functioning of the committee? Furthermore, what is the interplay between Part II of the MHO and the Enduring Powers of Attorney Ordinance (Cap 501)? Answers to these questions will provide practitioners with a holistic perspective of Part II of the MHO.
