its rapid expansion, Hugill & Ip wishes to remain a focused boutique firm offering
bespoke legal services, while keeping a readily adaptable attitude, an
innovative approach and offer value for its clients.
The benefit of being a boutique firm and
the advantage of being specialised allow the firm to provide tailor-made solutions
and exceptional service in its core business areas while focusing on putting
clients’ interests first.
A great level of flexibility and
renewed joy has been at the firm’s core since the beginning, also given the fundamental

& Commercial – Dispute Resolution.

“In the past twelve months we have experienced a counter-trend in that our
Corporate & Commercial practice has seen growth notwithstanding the general
downturn as a result of a tense political and economic environment. Our M&A
and general commercial work has solidly increased, and we are thrilled that
Jade seamlessly complements us in terms of additional capability in Corporate,
M&A, Employment and regulatory work”.
Adam Hugill highlighted: “Jade is
an exceptionally talented lawyer who clients trust unreservedly. It was a joy
to work with her previously and I know she will be a fantastic asset to our
Corporate & Commercial and Employment teams, strengthening our ability to
service clients in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Japan and throughout the region”.
