Career

Tse practised law as a barrister in Australia for seven years after graduating from University of New South Wales.

Tse then finished his pupillage in Hong Kong under Justice Peter Nguyen. Tse was called to the bar in 1992 and set up his own firm in 1997.

His media stunts and quest for self-publicity has caused controversy. From 1997 to 1999, Paul posed in his underpants only for magazines to spread the message that "laws are inherent to every people". After disciplinary hearings which lasted for nearly a decade, the Law Society of Hong Kong suspended his solicitor's license for 12 months for this stunt, but his firm could continue because there were other partners.

In 2010, Tse was the sole legislator to vote against the introduction of a minimum wage in Hong Kong.

Personal life

Tse was born in Shap Pat Heung, Yuen Long, New Territories, Hong Kong, under a working family. His family lives in New Jersey, United States.
