Hong Kong secondment
"One of the things that attracted me to the firm was the chance to spend 6 months working in Hong Kong."
Take a seat in our Hong Kong office and you could be working with Chinese, Korean and Japanese clients, really developing your international awareness.
”I went with an open mind and took away a more flexible approach, a fuller understanding of my own abilities and some great memories.”

"I'd never been to Asia before, so I couldn't wait to immerse myself in a completely different environment. Whilst being apprehensive at first about the language barrier, it really wasn't an issue. Professionally, I was keen to gain corporate experience in another jurisdiction and learn how people do business in the region. By working with Chinese, Korean and Japanese clients I developed my abilities on an international scale, which is really what Hong Kong is all about."

“I’d had my heart set on secondment to the Hong Kong office ever since I started my training contract, so it was great to finally make it out there. While I wouldn’t say our working cultures are actually all that different, it certainly gave me a greater appreciation of the firm’s international dimension. The one thing that really surprised me was just how much there is to Hong Kong. It’s not just skyscrapers. Away from Hong Kong island, if you head to Kowloon and the outlying islands, there are lots of beautiful beaches and country parks to explore.
