Culture is always important in a trusted advisor, but where personal tax issues are concerned it is particularly crucial. And experience suggests that the longer that culture has to develop, the better. Most of the world’s leading private client law firms can trace their origins back for many years – years of developing a culture that emphasises the highest standards of service, discretion, and quality.
It’s the same with Deacons. As Hong Kong’s longest-established independent law firm, we trace our roots back to 1851. During that time we have always acted for many of the highest-profile Hong Kong families and individuals, a tradition that we keep alive today – although now our clients are just as likely to include technology entrepreneurs as landowners.
Our talented personal tax team advises on all issues related to trusts, family businesses and estate succession plans. These include residence and domicile issues, establishing and modifying trust structures to hold a range of investments, and tax issues arising on divorce or death.
Throughout our aim is to understand our clients’ lifestyles and needs, and to achieve the most efficient tax position possible. Alongside this, we also represent our clients in negotiations with the tax authorities.
