Anthony Chan Background

Anthony Chan (also known by his real name, Wing Yuen Chan) was born in 1961 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


After studying at La Salle College, one of the elite high schools in Hong Kong, his family moved to Kent and he attended Ashville College, a boarding school in Harrogate, England.


Anthony then studied at the Royal Academy of Music before taking a law degree at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London.


Anthony then joined the international law firm, Clifford Chance, in 1987 where he remained for several years before moving to Hong Kong where he practised law at various law firms, including Baker & McKenzie, Milbank Tweed, Hammonds Squire Sanders and Dentons. Anthony retired from private legal practice in 2013.


Anthony is a British citizen and subject to British tax.


Anthony was declared bankrupt in Hong Kong (case number B3538/2016) on 17 August 2016 owing his creditors over HKD 50 million and remained bankrupt for four years until being automatically discharged from bankruptcy on 17 August 2020.


As at today, Anthony's pre-bankruptcy creditors still remain unpaid, owed over HKD 50 million.


Further, Anthony has created dozens of additional creditors (owed millions of USD, GBP, HKD, Swiss francs, RMB and Euro) as a result of the frauds he committed during his four year bankruptcy and since his automatic discharge from bankruptcy.


Anthony perpetrated the frauds described in this website during the four year period of his bankruptcy and continues to do so to this day.
