Trust & Private Wealth Structuring (PW)
We are well aware of entrepreneurs’ desire to protect their hard-earned wealth from surprises arising from complex tax regimes and unexpected claims and creditors. A good trust arrangement will not only preserve your assets but also pass them on to your next generations in an organized and seamless manner. We have vast experience in setting up private trusts customised to your individual needs and circumstances (especially your tax residency, retirement plans and family circumstances).
Apart from private trust, we are also experienced in advising corporations and individuals on their pension trusts and other incentive arrangements, e.g. Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). A good pension and incentive arrangement is crucial nowadays for corporations to retain the best talents. We also advise individuals on their rights and entitlements under the pension plans and incentive schemes.
We understand that, apart from preserving the family wealth, giving back to society could be equally if not more rewarding. However, turning a philanthropic concept into reality can be challenging, and even more so without proper advice. We are capable of advising on the establishment and operation of a charitable trust or other forms of charity. A tailored trust deed or Articles of Association will set a good foundation for the management and supervision of the entity. Among other things, we will assist in obtaining the tax exemption status under s.88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance (Cap. 112) to ensure proper recognition.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I start divorce proceedings?
Issue an application for divorce or a petition for divorce. Once this is done, the paperwork will be served to your spouse. A Family Court in Hong Kong will then deal with the case. Should you find yourself wanting a divorce or having been served with divorce papers, ensure you contact a lawyer from a well-known law firm that specialises in divorce and family law.
Who gets custody of children following a divorce?
When it comes to the custody of children in the event of a divorce, a Family Court will make a decision based on the wellbeing of the children. This may mean granting sole custody to one of the parents or joint custody, whereby both parents have the right to make a joint decision on major issues, such as education, health and where the children live.
