Gall’s award winning employment team deal with the full range of employment law related issues and are one of the few firms in Hong Kong who act for both employers and employees on both contentious and non-contentious matters.

We give advice and act for clients on all aspects of the employment relationship, including:

  • Hiring Strategies
  • Negotiating and drafting contract terms
  • Entitlements under deferred compensation, bonus and share schemes
  • Drafting and advising on post termination restrictions
  • Advising on performance reviews and appraisals
  • Advising on internal investigations, SFC regulatory investigations and disciplinary issues
  • Discrimination complaints
  • Advising on redundancy issues
  • Advising on termination and separation agreements
  • Applying for and defending injunctions
  • Representing both employers and employees engaged in legal proceedings from the Labour Tribunal to Court of Final Appeal

The strengths of the firm include high professional standards, taking the client’s interest first, and competence in related legal issues. I am particularly impressed with Andrea, the partner in charge.

Gall has been very professional throughout. Setting out the issues from the outset with a game plan on to deal with the authorities. Of course at the end, everything worked out as expected and our problems were solved.
