Employment is a central focus of our business and we advise Hong Kong clients and multinationals of all sizes on their employment law needs.

Meeting the competitive challenges of today’s rapidly changing world can require a radical re-think of the employer/employee relationship, and co-ordinating globally mobile talent can present significant challenges. Nurturing diversity, incentivising key staff and protecting against team defections are all essential to business success.

Our team of lawyers in Hong Kong advises both businesses headquartered in and those with operations in Hong Kong on the full range of employment law matters including:

We also advise on multi-jurisdictional employment law projects.
