Star Anise Legal is proud to be amongst the 60+ supporting firms of Hong Kong LGBT+ Attorneys Network (“HKGALA”) which includes leading international and local law firms and businesses. We pledge to commit to HKGALA’s mission and objectives, including the promotion of LGBT+ diversity and inclusion in the legal profession in Hong Kong.


Of Star Anise Legal’s commitment to promote the objectives of the not-for-profit organisation, HKGALA’s Executive Committee member, Jenny Chan said, “Star Anise, being a legal recruitment firm, widens the diversity of our supporting organizations. Since joining, Star Anise has been actively pursuing member events to benefit LGBT+ in the legal community. We welcome Star Anise aboard and look forward to all the exciting collaborations with the firm.”


In Hong Kong, members of the LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex) community have long been known to have faced discrimination in housing, job opportunities and immigration. Moreover, they face discrimination and persecution all over the world. HKGALA is the first official network for LGBTQI+ members (and straight allies) in the Hong Kong legal community.


HKGALA was founded in 2013 by a group of successful attorneys. Their objective is to, “promote LGBT+ diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, increase awareness of LGBT+ legal issues in Hong Kong and abroad, encourage LGBT-focused pro bono work, partner with public and private institutions to effect change at both social and legal levels, and ensure that, within the legal sector, LGBT+ individuals can bring their authentic selves to work.”
