Independent local firm Hugill & Ip acts for both employers and employees on contentious and non-contentious matters. It has been notably prominent in equal opportunity/discrimination cases, which are rarely seen in the Hong Kong market. In addition, its group’s other wide-ranging experience includes team moves, mass terminations and restructurings. The practice is led by name partner Adam Hugill. Another key individual is Christopher Hooley, who is recommended for advice on employment strategy in connection with team moves and senior executive hires/terminations.
