The rule of law and judicial independence are the cornerstones of Hong Kong's success, which have been protected by the Basic Law. The rule of law requires courts to exercise their power according to the laws independently and autonomously, free from any interference by the executive authorities. This turns Hong Kong into a reputable international legal services centre.
The Hong Kong legal profession, with its professionalism, integrity, efficiency and extensive experience in handling cross-border and multilateral legal issues, can assist enterprises to explore overseas markets. From advance legal advice and due diligence, to financing, mergers and acquisitions, as well as intellectual property protection and dispute resolution, Hong Kong lawyers can provide comprehensive "one-stop services" to their clients.
Under the framework of "One Country, Two Systems", Hong Kong leverages on the Mainland while engaging ourselves globally. Hong Kong lawyers have a good understanding in China affairs, and that the languages and culture of the two regions are similar. In addition, they have established a well-established international network and are familiar with the legal system in common law jurisdictions. Therefore, Hong Kong lawyers can give full play to the role of navigator and "super-connector", and become a trusted and indispensable partner for enterprises in Greater China to invest overseas.
