Lewis Silkin is highly renowned for employment and immigration law and has received global recognition with Who’s Who Legal awarding us ‘Law Firm of the Year for Labour, Employment & Pensions’.
Our locally licenced Hong Kong office offers high quality and cost-effective employment and global mobility support in both Hong Kong and across the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.
In Hong Kong we advise businesses and individuals on the full range of employment and immigration issues from the initial employment offer to departure and everything in between.
Additionally, many of our clients have an established or growing presence across the wider APAC region and need integrated support on employment and global mobility issues, which we are able to assist with by liaising with our locally qualified colleagues across the region.
Our Hong Kong office can also provide a first contact point for APAC-based businesses and individuals seeking advice on UK and European employment law and global mobility issues.
Our Hong Kong office won Immigration Law Firm of the Year in the 2018 Macallan ALB Hong Kong Law Awards as well as being shortlisted for both the Labour and Employment Law Firm of the Year and Rising Law Firm of the Year categories for the second year running.
