We are recognised as having one of the leading matrimonial and family law practices in HongKong. Our reputation is based on our expertise in dealing with all aspects of contentious and non-contentious family matters including the preparation of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements; conducting cases concerning custody and maintenance of children; financial disputes between divorcing couples and 3rd parties; and abduction of children. Additionally, three of the family court judges in Hong Kong, one of whom is a judge of the Court of First Instance, are former members of this firm.

We have a dedicated team with legal specialized experience in committee work including appointment by the High Court and as Professional Committee for the estate of mentally incapacitated persons under Part II of the Mental Health Ordinance, Cap 136 of the Laws of Hong Kong. We also assist applicants in making applications to the Court for the appointment of Committees as well as advising Committees on different aspects under the Mental Health Ordinance.
