Our lawyers and professional staff speak English, Cantonese, Mandarin, Hokkien, and Japanese to better service our Asian clients in their native languages.
Our track record
A number of our partners and lawyers have considerable onshore experience, having joined Ogier from magic and silver circle firms.
International finance, private clients and dispute resolution
For the Asia region, Ogier focuses on international finance and corporate law with a particular emphasis on investment funds, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and finance. We also have a private client and trusts practice, which advises high net worth individuals and families throughout Asia, as well as a dispute resolution practice providing contentious and non-contentious restructuring and insolvency legal services.
We act for a number of leading global financial institutions, investment managers and corporate entities and are also instructed by many leading law firms and intermediaries.
Why Hong Kong?
Hong Kong's low tax status free-market economy, its long history of financial and political stability, infrastructure and proximity to China and South East Asia have ensured that it has maintained its primacy in the competitive financial services world.
Ogier established a presence in Hong Kong at the start of 2006, recognising the use of Hong Kong companies in global and Asian business and its importance to global as well as Asian clients.
Hong Kong ranks as the second best jurisdiction overall for doing business, according to the World Bank's 2013 report, and is Asia's leading capital market.
