JC Legal Celebrates 2nd Office Move in 4 Years
Legal Service Made Easy by Virtual Legal Clinic and Startup Steward Programme
By: JC Legal
The team is dedicated and committed to doing greater things through bespoke services at a bigger space. Thanks to the continuous support of clients and strategic partners, JC Legal is shortlisted for multiple entries at the Kingfisher ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2022:
(a) Kingfisher Rising Law Firm of the Year;
(b) Transactional Boutique Law Firm of the Year;
(c) Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm of the Year; and
(d) Young Lawyer of the Year (Janice Chew, Principal).
In 2020, JC Legal launched the Virtual Legal Clinic to ease the public frustration for not being able to consult a lawyer face-to-face. The Virtual Legal Clinic enables anyone to ask a lawyer online for as brief as 20 minutes for instant directions at a fraction of hourly rates and pay online by credit card. With positive feedbacks from clients, JC Legal now offers an additional loyalty privilege to waive the consultation fee for clients who engage legal service within 7 days after the Virtual Legal Clinic.
The Virtual Legal Clinic has won multiple recognitions, such as the Gold Award for Best Service to Combat and Reduce the Impact of COVID-19 at the 2022 CEO and Executive World Awards. Ms Janice Chew, as the mastermind behind the initiative, received a Bronze Award for Executive Hero of the Year – Effective Leadership During COVID-19.
JC Legal supports startups and SMEs through its flagship Startup Steward Programme that provides a comprehensive one-stop solution for high-growth companies. The firm upgraded this programme to provide more exclusive privileges.
On top of the usual legal service provided for employment advisory, intellectual property, drafting and review of general commercial agreements, JC Legal extends their service partnership network and share additional offers. These include service providers and partners for corporate services, recruitment and workspaces. Clients can gain marketing exposure through features and interviews on JC Legal's blog and Startup Stories podcast or speaking opportunities at events to reach a global audience. The increased networking opportunities allow clients to build connections with JC Legal's cross-border professional networks in Hong Kong, ASEAN and the UK.
