A Leading Commercial Set of
Barristers in Hong Kong

 

The set was founded by four leading lawyers in the year 2000 in Prince’s Building. Several members were successful partners in international law firms before moving to the Bar to pursue their career in specialist advocacy.

We focus on commercial, company, technology & IP and public law work. We appear before all Hong Kong civil courts and specialist forums and international and domestic arbitral tribunals. Much of our work is cross border, involving clients throughout Asia Pacific and beyond.

We work with Hong Kong law firms on Hong Kong advocacy and advice. Foreign and Greater China lawyers and clients may instruct us directly on international arbitrations within or outside Hong Kong and for Hong Kong law advice. Members are regularly appointed as commercial arbitrators and mediators by parties throughout the world.
