Hong Kong’s OLN launches elder law practice




Hong Kong law firm Oldham, Li & Nie has launched an elder law practice group after hiring Helena Hu as a consultant to co-head it. It is believed to be the first Hong Kong law firm to offer such a practice.

The new practice will offer elder-related legal services, including asset consolidation and disposal, estate planning, probate and trust administration, wills drafting, powers of attorney, and handling disputes related to issues such as guardianship, inheritance and domicile.

With more than 20 years of experience as an in-house and external counsel, Hu’s expertise has spanned asset management, IPOs, post-listing regulatory and compliance matters, and ESG reporting. In her new role, she will advise clients on legal needs such as guardianship and inheritance.

“Elder Law is an established practice area in North America and much of Europe. We’re proud that our firm is at the forefront of pioneering this specialised practice area in Hong Kong,” said Gordon Oldham, senior partner of Oldham, Li & Nie, in a statement.
