Family work involves especially delicate and intimate issues pertaining to marriage, children and matrimonial assets. It requires practical solutions which yield expedited outcomes and minimal impact on vulnerable individuals. Given Hong Kong’s diverse international make-up, many cases are cross-jurisdictional and may involve complicated trust structures and corporations both at home and abroad.
