The Hong Kong Corporate Counsel Association was established March 2003 as the pioneer association representing in-house lawyers in Hong Kong. In 2011, we converted from an unincorporated association into a company limited by guarantee and are now officially Hong Kong Corporate Counsel Association Limited. The HKCCA provides an efficient and wide range of benefits and services for its members' professional development, including continuing legal education, a platform for networking and the exchange of ideas, information and experiences. We pride ourselves in knowing what members of the corporate counsel community want to learn, to hear, to advocate and to participate in, and we believe we know how to organise activities to meet these needs.
We have more than 800 members employed by organisations across a range of industries. Approximately half are members through our highly successful corporate membership scheme which many leading companies have joined.
We are a non-profit organisation and recently applied to be registered as a charity.
Our Objectives are set out in our Memorandum of Association.
The HKCCA's patron is Justice Joseph Fok. Justice Fok was appointed as Senior Counsel in 1999. He was appointed as a Recorder of the Court of First Instance of the High Court from 2003 to 2009, and Judge of the Court of First Instance of the High Court on February 1, 2010.
