While it also acts in commercial litigation, among other disciplines, the office has gained most acclaim for its ‘very strong private client offering’, which includes handling trusts, estate administration issues, tax work and succession planning matters, including for high-net-worth PRC individuals. ‘Seasoned and very experienced’ private client team head Clifford Ng takes the lead on most of this work and is also noted for his ability to provide ‘innovative and holistic solutions’ on matters with a nexus to Canada. Recently promoted partner Chloe Leung regularly works alongside Ng and is appreciated for her ‘hands-on’ approach and ability to provide ‘practical and strategic solutions’.
