Practical solutions to employment challenges

Our priority is helping our clients avoid potential pitfalls and find effective solutions that work for their businesses.

Hong Kong is blessed with a skilled, dedicated and industrious workforce – just one of the reasons why it’s an attractive place to do business. However, navigating a safe course through its increasingly complex regulatory environment presents challenges to even the best run business. A wrong turn can result in serious damage to a company’s reputation as well as to substantial costs.

At Deacons, we aim to help our clients anticipate likely problems before they arise. This could mean auditing employment policies and contracts, updating pensions and benefits arrangements, or just taking a firm but sensitive approach to handling issues before they become serious. 

Whatever the situation, our clients’ commercial priorities are always our main concern. Our clients seem to appreciate this: feedback on our employment and pensions practice has included praise for our “excellent service levels and value for money”, as well as our “ability to get into the mind of the client and to look at legal objections from its perspective”.

Our team acts for a wide range of companies, from multinational corporations to smaller Hong Kong businesses, as well as pension trustees and administrators, on a huge variety of issues including employment documentation, employee benefits and incentives, day-to-day HR issues, employment disputes, pension regulations, work and residence visas, and the employment aspects of M&A, transfers of business undertakings and restructurings.

Please take a look at our employment and pensions pages for more information on the range of work we undertake. And if you’d like to know more about how we could help your business, please feel free to get in touch.
