Employment law across APAC 亞太區僱傭法

Our Hong Kong office offers a high quality and cost-effective service for all employment law needs across Asia Pacific.

Our international employment lawyers support in-house counsel, HR teams and business managers based in the APAC region and beyond, acting as a single point of contact. From understanding the advantages and risks of putting people in particular jurisdictions, to carrying out a cross-border restructure and from advising on specific employment or immigration issues to auditing your people documentation and policies, our Hong Kong office can assist.

Working closely with clients, we map out projects and individual queries and manage them effectively through:

  • defining the scope of specific projects across APAC in collaboration with clients, as well our wider international team for each project or matter
  • ensuring we understand your commercial goals
  • managing input from across our international practice and ensuring that deadlines are met
  • refining, organising and optimising the information and advice clients receive so it is practical, commercial and easy to understand
  • assisting with implementation of advice when a course of action is approved
  • co-ordinating budgets and ensuring fees are dealt with in a streamlined and efficient fashion

Our team works seamlessly with the employment lawyers within Ius Laboris – the leading global alliance of HR law practitioners – to provide international employment law advice to clients across the globe.

It’s not just the APAC region that we provide support in either. Our team in Hong Kong regularly works with local clients on their employment law and global mobility needs in EMEA, or with US headquartered multinationals on their global HR and immigration projects.
