Partners Willy Cheng and Lai Lam Attended the Interlaw 2020 VAGM

During 19 to 23 October 2020, our partners Willy Cheng and Lai Lam participated at the Interlaw 2020 Virtual Annual Global Meeting. This year’s topic was “Turning Resilience into Opportunity”.

INTERLAW is an elite global law firm network comprised of top tier independent law firms from over 120 cities worldwide. To enhance the relations of strategic partners, seminars and networking meetings are held regularly for members to discuss topical issues and latest legal developments.

Throughout the 5-day meeting, lawyers and professionals from across the world gathered virtually and discussed various legal topics covering different practice areas. During the meeting of Tax- Key International Developments in the COVID era, our partner Willy Cheng gave an overview on tax planning from the Hong Kong perspective. He explained why Hong Kong is the best venue for investing in China by illustrating the advantages of Hong Kong’s simple tax system such as low and competitive tax rates and in particular, no tax on dividends and capital gains, stable currency, free foreign exchange and a strong rule of law.

Our firm’s partner, Mr. Willy Cheng spoke on the topic of “Structuring for Success and Tax Planning for a New Era”.

On the 2nd day of the meeting, our partner Lai Lam who is the vice chair (Asia Pacific) of the Interlaw Diversity, Inclusion and Community committee, took part in a discussion on racism and building an inclusive law firm.
