Cross-border Legal Services

We had set up the firm in Foshan to provide legal service for both Hong Kong and mainland customers.

Foshan3

With the merging of Hong Kong and Mainland China, it has been more and more common for people to work, invest, settle, and buy estate between both districts. Legal problems such as cross-border civil litigation, conveyancing, or family matters came along.

Lim and Lok Solicitors is the first Hong Kong law firm set up in Foshan. Our firm opened on 27th September 2017. The Address is Unit J, 6/F, Two AIA Financial Centre, 1 Denghu East Road, Guicheng, Nanhai District, Foshan, Guangdong, PRC.

It is an honor that we had guests from the department of justice of Guang Dong, the Justice Bureau of Foshan, the bar association of Foshan and Guang Dong, and some well-known lawyers to join our opening ceremony.

We hope to engage more in the cooperation of the lawyers from both districts with our Foshan firm. We will provide better legal services to customers from Hong Kong and mainland China.
