Chambers Asia-Pacific


A common sense approach to dispute resolution

Deacons combines an impressive track record of success in the Hong Kong and PRC courts with a down-to-earth approach to resolving disputes.

Disputes can be serious and costly at the best of times – and managing an international dispute can really sap your resources. Advisors who know the market and understand your business and concerns can lighten the load enormously.

The experienced dispute resolution team at Hong Kong’s longest-established independent law firm can help you avoid costly litigation and, when it does arise, resolve it successfully. 

Our success in this area has led to recommendations from major legal directories, including Chambers Asia-Pacific and Legal 500 Asia Pacific, along with a host of awards. But what pleases us most is the positive feedback from satisfied clients, who describe Deacons as “competitive, technically competent and easy to work with", and praise our “practicality and common-sense approach”.

Deacons’ reputation is founded on efficiently handling a wide range of cases, from large scale, complex, multijurisdictional litigation to more routine matters, in every area from general commercial and contractual cases, insurance and partnership disputes, to highly technical banking, IP, trusts, property, employment and tax litigation. 

Our practitioners are experienced at every level of the court system in Hong Kong, as well as in international arbitrations and mediations. Meanwhile, well-established connections with other large, independent law firms around the world leave us well placed to deal with multijurisdictional disputes.
