We are dedicated to deliver timely, pragmatic and comprehensive advice to assist you in achieving your business objectives and harnessing market opportunities.

Corporate Finance & Capital Market

Being a renowned major international financial centre, Hong Kong has one of the highest concentrations of banking and financial institutions in the world with complex and active capital markets. With a wide spectrum of fundraising options and approaches available in Hong Kong, we believe that the depth and diversity of our services can assist you in navigating through the dynamic legal and regulatory framework.

We have highly regarded expertise in all areas of corporate finance and capital markets, ranging from the Main Board and the Growth Enterprise Market of the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (“SEHK”) listing, bond issues, placing, right issues and secondary issues to loan financing. We also handle pre-IPO matters such as preliminary financing and restructuring, as well as Listing Rules, corporate compliance and other relevant laws. We have gained significant experience in representing clients across a broad spectrum of industries. With our representation of issuers, underwriters, sponsors and other market participants and our diverse clientele, our team is poised to deal with transactions of any scale and objectives.

Securities & Regulatory

The ever-changing regulatory regime and increasingly tightened scrutiny in Hong Kong has led to greater emphasis on regulatory compliance. Our highly experienced team acts for a number of clients in connection with all areas of securities and regulatory framework in Hong Kong. Not only do we offer comprehensive assistance to fund managers, security houses and other financial institutions in establishing companies and acquiring relevant licenses in Hong Kong (e.g. Securities and Futures Commission (“SFC”) Type 1 (dealing in securities), Type 2 (dealing in futures contracts), Type 4 (advising on securities), Type 5 (advising on futures contracts), Type 6 (advising on corporate finance), Type 9 (asset management) and Type 10 (providing credit rating services) license, and The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (“HKMA”) Virtual Bank License), we also deal with wider issues concerning compliance of investment services and investment products with the Securities and Futures Ordinance (“SFO”) and other relevant regulation and fund authorization.

Insurance & Regulatory

Citing the need to modernize Hong Kong’s insurance regulatory regime, the Insurance Authority is newly established to become the industry’s regulatory body. Drawing upon our diverse backgrounds and capabilities, we adopt a team-oriented approach to serve our clients. Our team is highly skilled in providing a wide range of practical legal solutions for sophisticated regulatory matters to financial and insurance institutions, including but not limited to application for licenses, sales team management, and insurance products compliance. We believe that our comprehensive understanding of our clients’ businesses enables us to offer customized regulatory guidance to our clients.

Corporate & Business

What sets our firm apart is our highly diverse client base that includes local and international companies across various fields. We have obtained in-depth experience and knowledge in advising on a broad spectrum of commercial matters such as setting up of trust, advising on trust structure, manufacturing, distribution, sale and purchase of goods, franchise, marketing, licensing, employment contract, employee benefits, and competition law. Our strong PRC connection and good relationship with PRC clients also strengthens our capability in addressing the needs and culture of PRC clients to tailor and structure the deal in an efficient manner.

We also assist clients in the setting up of funds (including fiat funds and crypto funds), and provide advice on such structure and associated tax issues.

TMT & Innovative Business

The emergence of virtual currencies and blockchain technology has now paved the way for various Fintech and Techfin companies to raise funds by way of initial coin offerings. We possess market-leading expertise in handling legal matters relating to Telecommunications, Media and Technology (“TMT”) and innovative business, including P2P lending, encrypted currency and blockchain technology. Our firm was one of the law firms advising the very first public ICO in Hong Kong on various issues including regulatory advisory (e.g. whether the token sale would be considered as a collective investment scheme (“CIS”)), marketing, strategy and technology advisory. We also provide unparalleled one-stop service through advising on data protection, intellectual property and know-how protection, application for licenses, and liaising with relevant regulatory bodies. We believe that our passion for innovation motivates us to deliver considerable added value for our clients and their ICO projects.

In addition, our firm provides legal advice on artificial intelligence (“AI”) related matters. We advise clients on the intellectual property, assignment, and transfer of AI in compliance with related laws in Hong Kong, and also assist clients in the implementation of AI into businesses in a legal and secure manner.



Due to the novel nature of Fintech and Techfin, a business may face legal and regulatory uncertainties. At L&Y we are committed to navigating our clients through the legal and regulatory landscape by leveraging our expertise and experience with the relevant Hong Kong financial regulations. We offer consultancy services for application for various licenses in Hong Kong, including but not limited to the Secuities and Futures Licence (SFO), Money Services Operators Licence (MSO), the Money Lenders Licence (MLO), and the Stored Value Facilities Licence (SVF). We also advise clients on the applicability of the relevant securities, futures, anti-money laundering (“AML”)/ counter-terrorism financing and data privacy legislation and regulations.
