Personal Injury Partner Doug Chiu was a speaker at the 16th Annual Medical Legal Conference of the Trial Lawyers Association of BC which took place in Hawaii earlier this month.
The conference theme was Make Rehab Work Again: Kick Starting a Care Plan. Doug is a Cantonese speaking lawyer, an active participant in the Chinese-Canadian community and he lectures at Registered Massage Therapy schools in the Lower Mainland. Drawing on his more than a decade of experience as a personal injury lawyer in Vancouver and with many clients from the Chinese –Canadian community, he took the theme and applied it to his own practice.
His presentation focused on “Tips and Strategies for an Ethnocentric Law Practice” and included topics such as the importance of appreciating the differences and subtleties of assisting clients who are not originally from Canada.
