Moving to Asia

We have a specialist team of recruiters who are dedicated to assisting you with your move to Hong Kong. Our recruiters will be able to give you a comprehensive overview of the legal market in Hong Kong, China and Singapore including salary information, in-demand practice areas, the interview process as well as help with securing a suitable role.  

In most cases, employers will provide assistance with relocation. Relocation packages vary from client to client but a mix of the following is usually offered:

  • Airfare for you and your family
  • Shipping costs
  • Temporary accommodation - two weeks to one month in a serviced apartment
  • Discounted real estate agent fees

US qualified lawyers joining a US law firm may also be eligible for a Cost of Living Allowance which on average ranges from US$60,000 – US$90,000 per annum.
