An Interview with
Justin Chow & Co., Solicitors LLP
I founded Justin Chow & Co., Solicitors LLP in January 2018 as a sole proprietor and, in the last 3 and half years, we have grown to a team of 10 people.
We often advise clients on contentious and non-contentious legal matters including, but not limited to, corporate and commercial, regulatory investigations and white collar defence (SFC/HKEX/ICAC), litigation and dispute resolutions, intellectual property and China related services.

Tell us about your background, and how you came to found your company?
I was born in the United Kingdom to a family full of entrepreneurs and spent half my life in London and the other half in Hong Kong.
After practicing law and absorbing experience from law firms in Hong Kong for 8 years I felt it was time to move on to a new project. The natural progression was to start my own law firm and follow in my family’s footsteps in being an entrepreneur.
What is most important to you and your organization – mission, vision, or core values? Why?
People are the most important to my organisation. I like to think that I attract like minded smart, meticulous and energetic people who are quick on their feet with a strong ability to solve and explain complex issues in layman terms.
I want to provide straight forward solutions to clients who come to us with complex issues. It is important for me to know that my clients enjoy working with us.
Can you explain briefly how your service(s)/product(s) works?
We are a firm of solicitors qualified to practice Hong Kong law.
We often work with legal correspondents in different jurisdictions to provide multi-jurisdictional services.
How has the industry been changing in recent years?
Clients are more cost conscious, in-house legal teams are getting bigger and law firms are still behind times in terms of adopting new technology. Perhaps something my entrepreneurial side could look into?
What makes you different from what’s currently available in the market?
We often provide fee quotes to clients rather than charging by the hour. This provides our clients with certainty in this difficult economic climate.
What does the future hold for your company?
We just moved to a new office which is 3 times the size of our first office. We intend to continue to expand and provide top quality services to our clients. As our team expands we hope to offer more services to our clients.
