Chong strikes out on her own

HIGH-PROFILE lawyer Patti Chong has made the decision to leave her position as a senior prosecutor in the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and establish her own practice. Ms Chong will resign from the position on August 31. She will take instructions in all areas of law and will offer consulting services on corporate crime and corruption prevention and advise on risk strategies. Ms Chong’s practice will open on September 1. She has spent 14 years as a public prosecutor before becoming the inaugural General Counsel of the Corruption and Crime Commission. In December of 2005, Ms Chong returned to the office of the DPP following the decision of the Corruption and Crime Commission to investigate matters surrounding the Andrew Mallard case. Ms Chong’s husband, Ken Bates, was the prosecutor involved in the Mallard case. Ms Chong returned to the DPP so as to avoid any suggestion of a conflict of interest in the CCC’s investigation into matters surrounding the Mallard case and her husband’s role in it as the DPP prosecutor.
