Hong Kong

We offer training contracts and vacation schemes in our Hong Kong Office. These are for individuals who want to build a long term career in Hong Kong, and who aim to become Hong Kong qualified.

Hong Kong training contracts

HFW Hong Kong is now recruiting trainee solicitors for training contracts that will commence in 2025.

Our work in Hong Kong is international, top-quality, and varied – you could find yourself assisting with the financing arrangements for a new aircraft, working on a cross border fraud or insolvency case, arresting a ship, or attending an international commodities arbitration or a construction dispute mediation. You will be challenged every day to think creatively and solve problems. No day will be the same.

You will work directly with clients and gain exposure to market leading work. You may also have the opportunity to be seconded to one of our many international offices.

Remuneration: We offer our trainees a competitive salary and benefits package and will contribute towards your PCLL studies.

Vacation schemes

We offer winter and summer vacation schemes each year, which will enable you to experience our work and culture firsthand. If you join us on a vacation scheme, we will also consider you for a training contract.
