Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons is frequently singled out by clients for its high service standards and market knowledge in the investment funds arena.
Deacons’ strength in investment funds related legal services lies in our deeps roots in the Hong Kong market and our ability to offer commercial, timely and effective advice. In any industry – and law is no exception – what really matters is what your clients think. So we are delighted that, year after year, our clients tell independent researchers that Deacons’ Investment Funds practice is “head and shoulders above the competition” (Legal 500 Asia Pacific), “unmatched on registered funds work” (IFLR 1000), and “one of the pre-eminent practices” at a “competitive price” (Chambers Asia Pacific).
Our experienced investment funds lawyers are dedicated to keeping ahead of market developments and providing our clients with the highest possible service standards. That’s why we have achieved a long list of market firsts, introducing to Hong Kong many new and innovative products.
As the largest investment funds team in Hong Kong, we act for the lion’s share of international and local asset managers.
Our work on retail funds is well known. We also have exceptional experience in the full range of hedge funds and private equity funds, as demonstrated by our multiple wins at the HFM Asia Hedge Fund Services Awards. Our regulatory advice is marked by strong local knowledge and over 30 years of dealing with Hong Kong’s Securities and Futures Commission (SFC). For work involving Mainland China, we can draw upon our dedicated team of Mandarin-speaking lawyers and the resources of our representative offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
