With effect on 1 December 2020, Jonathan Mok Legal will end its association with Charles Russell Speechlys. Jonathan Mok Legal will continue to operate as a separate boutique firm and will carry on pursuing its long-term objectives of being a leading firm specialising in family disputes and private client advisory and structuring.
Jonathan Mok, principal, says:-
“After spending the majority of my 22 years in Mayer Brown JSM (currently known as Mayer Brown) as a partner, I have appreciated the opportunity to form an association with Charles Russell Speechlys and to operate my own firm Jonathan Mok Legal. This has enabled me to put together a Private Clients team and within a short space of 3 years, we have not only established ourselves as one of the few specialists in family disputes but have also expanded into wealth planning for local tycoons and ultra-high net worth families.”
Thanks to the efforts of the two firms, Jonathan Mok Legal and Charles Russell Speechlys’ Hong Kong office were shortlisted respectively as the “Matrimonial and Family Law Firm of the Year” at the Macallan ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2019 and “New Asian Office of the Year” at the 2020 Asia Legal Awards.
