Legal work requires highly sophisticated skills.

Clients look for the right lawyer for the right job. In today's fast moving commercial environment it is important that lawyers understand their client's needs and can offer appropriate levels of expertise. Our lawyers specialize in certain specific areas of law and practice which in turn allows the firm to deliver the best available legal service focused on the nature of the individual client's particular case.

International Perspective & Networking

The world is a global village, and this affects the way law firms deliver legal services. Rarely do we see a legal case in Hong Kong that does not involve a foreign element such as location of the subject matter, applicable law or client nationality. This is increasingly the case given the growth of the internet where "cross-border" transactions effected in cyberspace are abundant. To meet such challenge, we partner with law firms in Europe, Australia, mainland China and North American and we are therefore capable of providing a one stop multi-jurisdictional service. All our associated law firms are well known to us and we have had a good prior working relationship with them. We work closely with them to ensure that, we all deliver an excellent team based service for our clients.

Most of our lawyers were educated abroad and have had experience of living and working overseas. They have an international perspective and understand the needs of international clients and clients looking to do business outside Hong Kong. We have experience in assisting non-China entities with business and legal issues in mainland China and also Chinese individuals and corporations considering outbound investments in various parts of the world.

Legal Advice with a Pragmatic View

A pure legalistic approach is often not the real solution to problems that arise in real life situations. Most of our lawyers have gained working experience in industry and commerce and as a result understand how important it is to adopt a multi-discipline approach to problem solving. We endeavor to offer a pragmatic legal/commercial solution in light of our client's particular needs.

High Productivity at Competitive Fee Level

Although no two legal cases are identical, the handling procedure, research materials and documentations are often similar. To provide client with a speedy yet comprehensive legal service, we capitalize on our lawyers' expertise and maintain a computer-based Knowledge Management System where practical experience on similar cases is accumulated and shared by members of the firm. Through such KMS, all of the firm's intellectual resources are pulled together to serve clients. Our efficient KMS procedure enables us to deliver legal services at a lower fee than many other legal service providers.

Our service is fully supported by highly efficient cloud-based computing systems and dedicated practice software, which enable our lawyers in Hong Kong and our associate law firms in other parts of the world to work for our clients around the clock.
