The Deacons difference  

Whether you are doing business in Hong Kong for the first time, or understand its business environment perfectly, it is still good to know that you are in safe hands. It is good to know, for example, that Deacons is the largest full-service independent law firm in Hong Kong, as well as the longest established. 

Since 1851 we have been developing a unique culture, which blends traditional client care with modern technology and working practices. Our integrity and dedication to the highest service standards is matched by our cosmopolitan nature and commitment to innovation. Deacons’ clients receive: 

  • Top quality advice in 16 key service areas;
  • Access to the experience of our 49 partners and over 200 lawyers; 
  • The resources of our international networks; 
  • Three representative offices in mainland China; and
  • The benefit of our deep knowledge of, and relationships with, Hong Kong’s business community, built up over many years. 

It is no surprise that our achievements have been recognised by respected publications, such as Chambers Asia-Pacific and Asian Legal Business, including being voted ‘Hong Kong’s Law Firm of the Year’ and ‘Employer of Choice’ on numerous occasions. 

What really matters to us, however, is what our clients think. And they tell us that what they appreciate most is our ability to understand their businesses and time pressures, and to act as ‘trusted advisors’ in helping them to take crucial business decisions.
