For the first time in the firm’s history, multiple TDW lawyers have won Gold awards in The Law Society of Hong Kong’s Pro Bono Awards.

We are pleased to be able to provide legal services to those in need.

We are delighted to win several Gold awards for our pro bono work and we thank The Law Society of Hong Kong for this honour.

The individual awardees are as follows:

Bronze Award (not less than 20 hours): Joanne Lam

About the Programme

The Law Society of Hong Kong Pro Bono and Community Work Recognition Programme 2021 is a method for The Law Society of Hong Kong to encourage law firms and members to carry out pro bono and community focused work; it was set up in January 2010. All members, trainee solicitors and registered foreign lawyers who are active in giving back are given the opportunity to present their service so they can be recognised and their work appreciated.
