Our firm has over ninety members - including 30 odd solicitors, 1 Australian and New Zealand registered patent attorney and 6 trainee solicitors. There are 3 notaries public, 5 China-Appointed Attesting Officers, 1 Chartered Arbitrator and 2 Accredited Mediators in our Firm. Many of our lawyers are qualified to practise in jurisdictions apart from Hong Kong, such as England, Australia and Singapore.


Going international, we allied with law firms in New Zealand and France in the 1990s. In 1996, the firm established alliances with A.J.

Later in 1998, we allied with Lefèvre Pelletier & associés, Avocats, a French law firm well known for the provision of quality services.
