Who We Help
The Law Firm
David Cameron Law Office ("DCLO") brings global experience to Asia-based, corporate legal needs. DCLO is uniquely positioned as an international law firm based in Hong Kong.
It is from this position that DCLO can provide advice and solutions from an international perspective, and bring to bear years of experience at the US and UK law firms, while being your local partner.
DCLO is a corporate law firm, offering advice and solutions on general corporate matters, capital raising, fund formation and contract law. DCLO also has specialized areas in structuring transactions, litigation and acting as external general counsel for growing companies that do not yet have their own in-house legal counsel.
Located in the heart of Central, DCLO is a Hong Kong law firm, qualified to advise on Hong Kong law and New York law.
Whether you choose your law firm based on the brand or the individual partner, at DCLO they are one in the same. Behind the DCLO brand, you will find the same level of high-quality and experienced advice, each time.
At DCLO, we genuinely feel our clients are better served by an up front agreed fee model rather than the traditional billable hour. We believe this has many benefits. With our fixed-fee approach, our emphasis is on results, outcomes and outputs for our clients rather than time spent, and we believe this better aligns your interests with ours. We want to be reward for our effectiveness in assisting you to solve your legal needs. Our up front pricing model provides our clients with cost visibility, allowing you to budget and plan your finances more effectively. We agree our scope of work and fees up front because we do not want to have billing disputes with our clients.
Notwithstanding any agreement we may have with you on our fees, if you believe that the quality of the service we deliver does not measure up to the standard agreed at the outset, then we invite you to discuss with us how that should be reflected in the fee you pay to DCLO.

“Before DCLO came along, we struggled to find the right law firm. The US and UK law firms are big (and expensive). The local HK firms don't have the international experience. DCLO is right in the sweet spot and the perfect fit for us”
