Dillon Eustace is the only Irish law firm to have representative offices in Cayman Islands, New York, Tokyo and Hong Kong, demonstrating dedication to the service of its large and diverse international client base. This international network enables Dillon Eustace to provide real-time Irish legal advice to our Asian based clients and provides us with a detailed understanding of the local market and of the opportunities provided and challenges posed by regulatory changes in Hong Kong and other Asian markets on the Irish domiciled structures utilised by our Asian clients.
Our Hong Kong office, which builds on the firm’s long term presence in the Asian market has been opened in response to the continuing strong growth in the financial services market in Asia generally and Hong Kong specifically. The strength and recognition of both the UCITS brand and Ireland’s position as a pre-eminent domicile of choice for UCITS in Asia and Hong Kong’s position as one of Asia’s leading financial services centre made Hong Kong the natural choice for Dillon Eustace’s expansion in Asia.
The Hong Kong office will facilitate both Asian asset managers with operations in Hong Kong and international managers based there by providing Irish legal advice on all aspects of establishing an Irish domiciled fund structure through its Tier 1 ranked financial services practice (The Legal 500, 2011). The office will also focus on advising Asian-based companies seeking to expand into a tax efficient onshore jurisdiction such as Ireland. The Hong Kong office will provide expert legal advice on banking, capital markets, corporate, litigation, distressed asset, securities litigation and real estate transactions and related tax advice.
The Hong Kong office, which is headed by Paul Moloney, will serve Dillon Eustace’s existing Hong Kong based clients as well as providing an additional point of access for the firm’s existing Asian clientele.
