Lim & Lok Solicitors Foshan Office, the first Hong Kong-funded law firm in Foshan City, formally commenced business on 27 September 2017 at Unit J, 6/F, Tower 2, AIA Financial Center, 1 Denghu East Road, Guicheng Street, Nanhai District, Foshan City, Guangdong Province.

In our ribbon-cutting ceremony that day, we were honoured to have the presence of Huang Meixin (deputy director of Lawyer Work Management Office of the Department of Justice, Guangdong), Zeng Guoxuan (investigator of Foshan Municipal Justice Bureau), Jin Yonggang (deputy director of Justice Bureau of Nanhai District, Foshan City), Chen Fang (vice chairman of Guangdong Lawyers Association), Cao Jianyu (vice chairman of Foshan Lawyers Association) and many famous lawyers in Foshan.

As the Mainland and Hong Kong get more linked in economy and life, it has become increasingly common for Hong Kongers and the Mainlanders to shuttle to work, invest, settle down and buy houses on each other’s sides.As a result, there come such issues as cross-border civil litigations, criminal litigations, business affairs, legacy affairs and family affairs.

The Foshan Office is intended to enhance cooperation between lawyers in Hong Kong and the Mainland to provide our clients on both sides with better cross-border legal service.
