Andrea is an excellent employment and labour lawyer in HK. The advice that she provides is top notch and she saw a very difficult matter through to a positive resolution for us.

She is an excellent counsel (in the truest sense of a counsellor who offered sharp and thoughtful advice) and her service standards were of the highest order.

Very effective and focused on the executive termination matter, and helped it reach a conclusion that was positive for the client. Overall, the quality of the advice has been fantastic.

The firm has very strong and attentive client service, detailed and thoughtful analysis of relevant case law, and demonstrated deep experience in Hong Kong employment related matters.
