We are specialist legal and compliance recruiters based in Hong Kong. 

And it's not just lawyers and paralegals we help to place. Our service coverage extends to industries related to the legal sector including compliance and corporate governance, regulatory, investigations, company secretarial, accounting and finance and their respective support professions.  

From our offices in Hong Kong, we cover the major financial hubs in the APAC region (including greater China) and assist the following types of organisations in their professional hiring needs:

  • law firms 
  • banks and financial services companies
  • multinational corporations
  • local private and listed companies
  • fintech and fast growth tech companies

It certainly is a myth that legal staff only exist within a law firm bubble.  Far from it, more and more commercial enterprises across Asia are hiring lawyers, compliance and corporate governance professionals because of the need to have a trusted legal or compliance advisor in-house.  And with  greater regulatory and compliance pressures being applied, the demand for legal related professionals in Asia is set to get bigger.
