Michael primarily worked in the Trust and commercial areas, providing advice and guidance to clients as a professional Trustee and as a Director and adviser to many Companies until his recent retirement in 2021.

Before establishing Michael Chung Law Office in 1997, Michael started his career as a Solicitor in a large national law firm and then a partner in a small Wellington law firm.

Michael is married to Siena and has two adult sons. Now enjoying his retirement, his passions are his family, travelling, food, wine and his small olive grove in Martinborough where he spends many a day sitting on his tractor mowing the rows in between the olive trees.
