Detailed local knowledge with an international perspective 

Combining considerable experience of employment law in Hong Kong with a global perspective, we provide a seamless service to our international clients.

In our global business environment, balancing the commercial imperatives of an international workforce with the demands of local regulatory regimes can present a particular challenge. 

Whether you are part of an established multinational or planning your first overseas expansion, we can provide high quality, practical advice tailored to your unique circumstances. 

As Hong Kong’s own world-class law firm, Deacons combines an impressive knowledge of the regional market with a robust, international outlook – an approach that attracts some of the world’s best known companies to seek our advice on employment issues. For example, we have recently:

  • Provided workplace discrimination and harassment training for a number of US and Japanese firms;
  • Advised on employment issues surrounding the merger of two major Japanese banks;
  • Handled cross-border employment work involving the US and Hong Kong in connection with an employee suspected of serious misconduct. 

Deacons’ Hong Kong-based team also works closely with our employment law specialists in our offices in Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai to provide our clients with a seamless service on complex employment issues in the People's Republic of China.  

In addition, Deacons is the Hong Kong member firm of the Employment Law Alliance (ELA), a legal network of over 160 leading independent law firms with more than 3,000 lawyers globally. The network offers top quality employment expertise in more than 135 countries globally and all 50 US states – http://www.employmentlawalliance.com.
