Integrated solutions

In today’s world, business issues can be complicated and involve many angles. Legal advice is often a key, but not the only, consideration. Wherever needed by our clients, our corporate lawyers frequently act alongside other professionals in accounting, tax, consulting and other services as part of integrated advisory teams, providing a seamless and streamlined experience that drives down risk and builds value. 

Local expertise, global connections

All our lawyers have extensive knowledge and familiarity with the Hong Kong and China markets. Our partners bring a wealth of experience gained in helping clients across Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Africa in a combination of international private practice and in-house roles with legal qualifications covering Hong Kong, England, Australia and elsewhere. Whether our clients’ corporate needs are purely Hong Kong focused, involve China, are pan-Asian or truly global, we ensure our solution-focused, practical experience adds real value.  

We also have dedicated teams serving China-related mandates, working hand-in-hand with domestic Chinese law firms well known to us, as well as transactions across Asia and multiple jurisdictions generally (whether under local or foreign laws).
