About

YOUR CORPORATE LAW ADVISORS

Welcome to Slotine. Since 2016, we have been helping companies of all sizes navigate complex legal landscapes in Hong Kong and the wider Asia Pacific region.

We serve a broad range of clients, from small or medium-sized local companies, to large firms that are either based in Asia Pacific or are planning to expand within the region. At the heart of everything we do is our multilingual team of French lawyers and Hong Kong solicitors. Together, we offer you expert legal advice characterised by clarity, responsiveness and agility.

We also partner with a wide network of law firms, accountants, tax consultants and company secretaries around the world. This enables us to serve your needs in the best possible way. So whether you need advice about legal documentation, or wish to collaborate with a legal partner who can conduct in-depth research into a complex issue, we are always ready to lend our expertise.

 

OUR VALUES

Our approach to our work is underpinned by our three corporate values. These guide us in all our actions, and enable us to serve you in the best possible way, each and every time.

 

CLEAR
Our emails are easy to understand. We are responsive and communicative. We are also multicultural and multilingual, so our clients are always in the know.

FORWARD-THINKING
We think and plan for the future. With our clients’ ultimate goals in mind, we anticipate action and go the extra mile to keep them prepared every step of the way.

EFFECTIVE
We produce results.

 

OUR CULTURE

We believe that our people can only achieve the best for you if we provide an environment where they can thrive. So through our team’s collective past experience working in France, London and Hong Kong, we have been able to develop a special culture that is unique to Slotine. Like our values, our culture is supported by three pillars:

 

THE BEST PLACE TO WORK
Our modern, open-plan office is designed to encourage productivity. The office is very comfortable and is filled with natural light. The space is defined by quality and practicality, and includes large workspaces and a sound-proof room for conference calls and meetings.

TRUSTED RELATIONSHIPS
Our clients turn to us time and time again because we are always ready to stand by them when the need arises. Building lasting relationships is a process that takes years, but our list of satisfied clients continues to grow because of the trust we have earnt from them by dealing with their legal challenges.

A FLEXIBLE APPROACH TO RESOURCES
When we work with you, we consider which team member has helped you in the past, as well as the practice area required and sophistication of any new questions. Work can be split between different team members for more efficiency, and we provide in-depth training to all to ensure whoever takes your case is fully competent and familiar.

 

OUR NETWORK

Hong Kong is a hub for Asia Pacific, as well as for companies wishing to make global investments. To ensure we can deal with all enquiries and provide the most efficient service, we have developed a strong network of partners to cater to your requests.

Over the years, we have met with many lawyers and professionals in other jurisdictions. We are regularly in contact with correspondents in the United States, Dubai, France, Italy, Germany, Morocco, Portugal, Singapore, Spain and the United Kingdom. The list of jurisdictions where our partners operate grows regularly.

 

UGGC AVOCATS
Slotine entered into an association agreement with international law firm UGGC Avocats in October 2018. Each firm remains independent but we regularly work together as one team on joint cases, which gives clients the option of having one unique contact person.

INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF LAWYERS
Slotine is a member of the International Association of Lawyers (UIA), a multilingual, multicultural organisation. It is the only major international lawyers’ organisation to have adopted French, English and Spanish as its working languages. At present, through its collective members (bars, federations and associations) and individual members, UIA comprises around two million lawyers from more than 120 countries.

INTER PACIFIC BAR ASSOCIATION
We are also a member of the Inter Pacific Bar Association (IPBA) and regularly feature on its cross-border committee.

MLS COMPANY SECRETARY (HONG KONG AND SINGAPORE)
MLS Company Secretary and Slotine are independent of each other, and provide support services, such as company secretary (TCSP licence No. 18 in Hong Kong), trademarks registration and contracts management. Maëva Slotine is director and the sole shareholder for both companies.
