Hong Kong trainee and clerkship opportunities

Enabling trainee solicitors to join our Hong Kong office for training contracts, offering the chance to work closely with clients and gain exposure to a variety of legal matters.


HFW Hong Kong is now recruiting trainee solicitors for training contracts that will commence in 2026.

Our work in Hong Kong is international, top-quality, and varied – you could find yourself assisting with the financing arrangements for a new aircraft, working on a cross border fraud or insolvency case, arresting a ship, or attending an international commodities arbitration or a construction dispute mediation. You will be challenged every day to think creatively and solve problems. No day will be the same.

You will work directly with clients and gain exposure to market leading work. You may also have the opportunity to be seconded to one of our many international offices.

Remuneration: We offer our trainees a competitive salary and benefits package and will contribute towards your PCLL studies.


We offer winter and summer vacation schemes each year, which will enable you to experience our work and culture firsthand. If you join us on a vacation scheme, we will also consider you for a training contract.


Hong Kong 2024 Summer Vacation Scheme application due date: Thursday 29 February 2024.

  • Batch 1: 27 May to 7 Jun 2024.
  • Batch 2: 10 to 21 Jun 2024.
  • Batch 3: 24 Jun to 5 Jul 2024.


We are looking for individuals with strong academics and analytical skills, lots of enthusiasm and a passion for law and commerce. Mandarin language skills are desirable, but not essential.
