Jones Day

All of us at Jones Day are delighted to be a part of the 2019 edition of the GC Powerlist Hong Kong, together with the in-house teams recognised. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to each and every one included in the GC Powerlist Hong Kong Teams 2019 and celebrate your achievements and contributions to the corporate and legal ecosystems in Hong Kong and beyond.

We have had the privilege of working with many of you, and it is fantastic to see your efforts recognised. In particular, a special welcome back to those of you who were recognised in the 2018 edition of the GC Powerlist Hong Kong.

As the dominant commercial hub in Asia, Hong Kong is home to the regional headquarters of the world’s top business organisations and the base from which PRC businesses commence their global growth. The role of an in-house lawyer in Hong Kong is a rapidly evolving one, shaped by the relentless pressures of the global marketplace. Most of you have a purview that extends beyond Hong Kong, covering multiple jurisdictions, different legal systems, various practice areas and at the same time, prioritising commercial concerns while minimising legal risks for your institution.

At Jones Day, we understand the challenges you face. As one of the first US law firms to expand into Asia, we have witnessed various business cycles since the opening of our Hong Kong office in 1986, and have been proud to support our clients in Hong Kong and throughout the region through our Greater China offices and other offices worldwide.

As one of the world’s largest and most geographically comprehensive law firms, Jones Day is synonymous with responsive and dedicated client service. Spread over five continents, Jones Day has more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices based in key cities and financial centres, working together as “One Firm Worldwide”, providing our clients with seamless access to a full spectrum of practice areas. When client matters have an interdisciplinary dimension, we are proud to make available to our clients our unique blend of talent and service across specialties and jurisdictions.

Jones Day’s partners hold a core set of common values, with a unity of purpose in providing unparalleled service and quality to our clients, reflecting Jones Day’s deep-rooted set of shared professional values which can be traced to our beginnings in 1893.

Our dedication to client service has not gone unnoticed: for example, in 2019, we were ranked Number 1 by BTI Consulting in its ‘Client Service A-Team’ survey for the third consecutive year, based on unprompted responses from more than 350 in-depth interviews with in-house legal counsel from the Fortune 500, and the 11th time since BTI has been publishing these results, an unprecedented achievement which also saw us secure “Best of the Best” rankings in all 17 categories.

We are honoured to play our part, in cooperation with The Legal 500, to once again congratulate all the in-house teams on their well-deserved inclusion in the GC Powerlist Hong Kong Teams 2019. We look forward to more years working in close partnership with each of you.
