According to the NPC Standing Committee’s Decision on Authorising the State Council for the implementation of Pilot Measures for Hong Kong and Macao Legal Practitioners to Obtain Mainland Practicing Qualifications and Practice Legal Business in Nine Pearl River Delta Cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and the Circular of the General Office of the State Council on Printing and Issuing the Pilot Measures for Hong Kong Legal Practitioners and Macao Practicing Lawyers to Obtain Mainland Practicing Qualifications and Practice Legal Business in Nine Mainland Cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, (GBF No.37[2020]), the Ministry of Justice decided to initiate the service of lawyer licenses (of the Greater Bay Area) since June 28th, 2022. A few days ago, lawyer Ho Lok Cheong, lawyer Shum Hon Wo and lawyer Cheung Yip Wah have joined Tahota after they were approved to practice legal business in the Guangdong-Hongkong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The Guangdong-Hongkong-Macao Greater Bay Area is one of the regions with most frequent economic activities in the world. Recent years have witnessed a further deepening of integrated development in the Greater Bay Area, which produces a vast market for cross-border legal services. Therefore, it is an irresistible trend to absorb professional legal talents from Hongkong and Macao into the construction of the Greater Bay Area legal system. Tahota has always taken the business development in the Greater Bay Area as one of its key layouts. It has set up offices in Shenzhen, Hongkong and Guangzhou, forming a systematic coverage over the legal service market in the Greater Bay Area. Moreover, complying to the historical mission and strategic position out of the State Council Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Tahota has put great efforts in developing new business sectors including TMT, cross-border trade, urban renewal, medicine and life science and ecological environmental protection based on local innovative-driven economy.

The Greater Bay Area is pregnant with energy and vitality, and we should forge ahead on a new journey. The three lawyers said, “it is a pilot practice for layers to provide legal services with dual-certificate recognized by both Hongkong and Macao and the mainland.  Since we are lucky enough to get involved, we should proactively serve to promote the integrated development of legal system in the Greater Bay Area.” Looking ahead, lawyers in Tahota will work together with those from the Greater Bay Area to advance the high-quality development of legal services of the area.
