We are proud to announce that Deacons has been presented with a 5 Year + Caring Company Award by the Hong Kong Council of Social Services. The award is in recognition of the firm’s commitment to caring for our employees, community and environment and this is the fifth consecutive year that we have received this recognition.
As Hong Kong’s oldest independent law firm, we have long recognised the importance of giving back to our community. We encourage everyone at all levels of the firm to play an active role in community activities ranging from giving pro bono advice to supporting local charities.
We are delighted to have the dedication of our lawyers and staff recognised by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service. Deacons was nominated for the award by two community partners, namely the Hans Andersen Club and the Hong Chi Association.
As an established and experienced law firm in Hong Kong, we aim to lead by example. Whether through community projects, volunteering or support of educational or environmental programmes, we aim to affect positive influence widely and build an inclusive community wherever we do business. This award is the result of the talent, passion, creativity and dedication of our corporate volunteers and our community partners.
