Adam Hugill Highlights the Importance of Social Responsibility at the Interact Law Conference

BRUSSELS, BELGIUM - Media OutReach - 8 November 2019 - This week the Interact Law conference kicked off with the
introduction of several new members joining the legal network: Bennani &
Associés which has offices in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria and Ivory Coast; Maheshwari & Co based in India,
but also offering a German and an Eastern European desk; Tonucci & Partners which is deeply
rooted in Italy where the firm has offices in 7 cities across the country, but
that also has a solid presence in Romania, Serbia and Albania.

Adam Hugill followed the new
members introduction highlighting Hugill & Ip
Solicitors' commitment to Social Responsibility. The firm actively promotes
diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in the community. It believes in
recognising and promoting talent and opportunities for every member of the
firm, regardless of gender, race, family status, disability, sexual
orientation, identity or expression, age, religion or beliefs.

Adam Hugill reiterated: "At Hugill & Ip we believe that social responsibility is a
necessary ethical stand, in which individuals are accountable for fulfilling
their civic duty. The actions of an individual must benefit the whole of
society. In this way, there must be a balance between economic growth and the
welfare of society and the environment."


Hugill & Ip has been involved in pro-bono and charity
campaigns since its early start and most recently has supported ACFR (Asian Fund for Cancer Research) for
its BRACE Awards in Singapore. Last week Hugill & Ip launched the "Wills
of Concern" campaign to raise funds for AIDS Concern in Hong Kong and spread awareness in
the local community about legal issues related to estate planning, LGBT rights,
discrimination, data privacy and confidentiality. The ultimate goal is to help
AIDS Concern achieve its
Triple Zero target: a fall of the annual HIV new infection rate, stopping the
spread of HIV/AIDS and eliminating stigma for people living with HIV. Until the end of
2019, direct donations to AIDS Concern will benefit this important cause, with Hugill
& Ip writing free wills in return.

The conference continued focusing on a capital market indepth
discussion on how a business can best prepare for Sale or Fundraising, then followed
by several speakers talking about Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence. As
a conclusion of this discussion, there was a special seminar on "Demystifying
Legal Tech
".

Hugill & Ip joined Interact Law earlier in 2019. The legal
network started its journey back at the beginning of the 90's in Europe and has
since grown and developed into an international network of independent law firms. Quality
of its members is preferred over quantity: aiming to have one firm per
jurisdiction ensures that only law firms and solicitors with extensive
experience and expertise are selected to be part of the network. Sometimes such
law firms are a leading practice only in one jurisdiction such as BDB Pitmans in the U.K., De Vos en Partners in The
Netherlands or Madrona Advogados in Brazil.  Other times they are present in different
jurisdictions as Zico Law in Southeast
Asia,  Cohen Amir-Aslani in France and
Iran or ECIJA in Spain and
Latin America.

Bespoke Legal Solutions

Hugill & Ip's view is long term and endeavours
to build lasting client relationships based on trust, professionalism and
discretion.

As a young independent law firm, yet its lawyers
bring decades of experience providing bespoke legal advice and exceptional
client service to individuals, families, entrepreneurs and businesses, in Hong
Kong and internationally.
