Hokman Wong

Hokman is a Senior Solicitor and specialises in cases where adults have suffered brain injuries.

Hokman joined Bolt Burdon Kemp in April 2019 and works closely with Suzanne Trask on complex high value brain injury claims. He is assisted by Heather Petrie and Eilish Barry.

He has wide experience of personal injury claims and has successfully concluded claims involving road traffic accidents, tripping accidents and workplace accidents.  At Bolt Burdon Kemp Hokman has applied this experience to managing personal injury claims for clients who have sustained life changing brain injuries.  He understands the difficulties brain injured clients and their families face and proactively seeks solutions whilst a claim is ongoing.  This includes seeking early interim payments; liaising with hospitals for early neurorehabilitation; appealing benefits decisions; arranging respite for carers; and challenging the Health and Safety Executive.

Prior to becoming a solicitor Hokman was a pharmacist and served the community by managing a local pharmacy in Woodford.  He then sought to apply his medical knowledge to helping people who suffered injury and qualified as a solicitor in 2014.  After that he specialised in medical negligence law.  Since then he has helped clients from all walks of life to secure compensation across a wide range of clinical areas, such as: vascular surgery, general practice, orthopaedics, obstetrics and cardiology.  He has also represented families in inquests involving deaths arising from medical treatment.

From serving the public as a pharmacist and fighting for clients’ rights as a solicitor, Hokman is acutely aware that each client is unique and deserves a tailored approach when bringing a claim.  As a brain injury specialist he understands how symptoms (such as: poor memory, frustration/anger and feelings of isolation) can affect clients.  Hokman seeks to ensure his clients are comfortable and happy with the way their claim is run.  This includes being available out of office hours, involving family members (when instructed), having face to face meetings as needed and always listening.

Hokman is passionate about his duty to secure the best outcome for his clients.  He likes nothing more than fighting for his clients to obtain justice and securing compensation that will improve their lives.

Hokman is bilingual and speaks Cantonese.
