Terence Tsang and the (THIRD) NEW Law Firm


Terence Tsang


Cramer Pelmont the new home of “Speculative Invoicer” Supreme Terence Tsang, has anounced it’s intention to join the “file sharing litigation arena”

What this may mean is not clear as in a piece done by Which? Alex Brassey claims it has NO INTENTION of adopting the same methods used by ACS:LAW Tsangs previous employer.

Quite what Mr Brassey means is unknown, he goes on to claim the that Terence Tsang was employed in April 2010 and that he has NO working relationship with ACS:LAW after that time.  Hmmm oh really?

Indeed Mr Brassey goes onto say “I can assure you that Terence is employed as a trainee solicitor on a full time basis with Cramer Pelmont, He is not under any contract with ACS Law and has not worked for them or with them since joining our firm.” Hmmm oh really?

In the interview with Which? Terence Tsang said ”‘What I was doing was introducing a new data supplier to Andrew because he was having trouble with his current one. The deal did not go ahead because I turned it down – there was a conflict of interest.” Hmmm oh really?

It is actually quite refreshing to see Mr Tsang speak in public, as many people who were accused have know of Terence Tsang stalking the Chatrooms set up to help those accused, seemingly to illicit confessions from people who had received letters from ACS:LAW.

From the emails it shows that either Mr Brassey is being economical with the truth,  OR he has been deceived

Some of the emails are clear

Hi Andrew

Good to catch up with you too.

They will do the monitoring for 17.5% Gross and will be ready to rock and roll on Friday (they need to add hardware). This is down from 30% net, as it is what they usually get in German, it is split 30/30/40 in Germany. This includes a 2.5% for me which they will pay me direct.

Hi Andrew

How are things going?

I am writing to give you a short update – all of the titles will be monitored by Friday. I know that Patrick as various questions which I will forward to you tomorrow (mostly in relation to the name of titles). I should be in a position to give you an indication on quantity of captured addresses shortly.



Others are CRYSTAL

It may be of interest to some that Terence Tsang first started at Davenport Lyons, and then left to form part of the core team at ACS:LAW, when the pressure from consumer groups outraged at their actions resulted in an investigation by the SRA, and a referral to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal for two of the Heads at Davenport Lyons.  Now it seems he has jumped ship again, just as another former Boss is referred to the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal


Of further interest it seems that Terence Tsangs Bio at Cramer Pelmont EXCLUDES any reference to ACS:LAW, we can only wonder why?

UPDATE: Please click here for a (Partial) list of emails by Terence Tsang and others (PDF) (Thanks 8of9)

EDIT: The emails captures are posted for authenticity.  Please click on the image and it should open in a NEW window fully sized and readable.

UPDATE: An announcement has been made on the Cramer Pelmont Website: “Cramer Pelmont has ceased its interest in working with clients in the area of the Digital Economy Act. It continues to work on all other aspects of IP”

UPDATE 2: Cramer Pelmont Alex Brassey has confirmed that Terence Tsang has LEFT their business and went on to state ” the reason it has ditched working on the Digital Economy Act is because it is self defeating – file sharers are downloading content because they like it, so to prosecute a potential investor is like shooting yourself in the foot. A model needs to be thought up whereby file sharers are not targeted aggressively, as with ACS:Law’s tactic.”

Quite a U-Turn I think you will agree.

    Great article, but punctuation and spelling suck a bit, making some of it more difficult to understand than it should.
    I’d give up on the pictures of emails, better transcribe them for readability. Only the 10 August 2010 transcribed email is readable without having to open extra browser tabs or picture viewers. Plus the fonts these lawyers use in their email client are really awful, better use your own! ^-^

    Nice seeing your comment and link on TorrentFreak.

      You are right, I am NOT good at grammar! The point you make regarding the emails is true to a point, the problem is authenticity, I wanted to show the emails HOW they are. I have included an email as a typed piece but don’t think it holds up as well. Of course people either trust my info or they don’t.

      Thankyou for taking the time to comment though. I hope you like the Blog(apart from the grammar)

        Interesting read.

        Emails are difficult ot read though. They’d probably work a lot better as resized PNG or JPG files instead of GIF (which doesn’t resize well).

    I have viewed the emails and these are authentic, just in-case people need any outside clarification.

    Nice job Hickster.

    There is THAT better with the images? (Some people are just so hard to please:-))

    Cramer Pelmont have removed the page about Terence Tsang from their website, and this message appears on their front page:

    “Cramer Pelmont has ceased its interest in working with clients in the area of the Digital Economy Act. It continues to work on all other aspects of IP.”

    The big question is what Tsang is doing now? I would have thought that about 2,500 hours of community service would be appropriate.

    Perhaps Terence Tsang has gone to Morgan Grenfell. As Cramer Pelmont must undoubtedly have known — because Tsang must undoubtedly have told them — Tsang developed a strange affinity for Morgan Grenfell some time back, an affinity that wasn’t actually reciprocated. Actually, Cramer Pelmont will have known all about that in exactly the same way they knew of Tsang’s £250 a month payment deal with ACS:Law, it being Cramer Pelmont’s policy to have no objection whatsoever to any of its employees working for a rival law firm simultaneously. Or, er. . .

    “seemingly to illicit confessions from people who had received letters from ACS:LAW.”

    ITYM ‘elicit’.
