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 18 key service areas;
  • Access to the experience of our 55 partners and more than 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 we have consistently been recognised by respected publications, such as Asian Legal Business and China Business Law Journal, including being voted as “Hong Kong’s Law Firm of the Year” and “Employer of Choice” on numerous occasions. In addition, we have been recognised repeatedly as a top-ranked and top-tier firm across many practice areas by legal directories such as Chambers Greater China Region Guide and Legal 500 Asia Pacific Guide.

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.
