Jeannette Tam

Senior Managing Associate Hong Kong

About Me

As a senior managing associate in our international HR Services practice, I have a wealth of experience advising our clients on contentious and non-contentious employment issues.

Specialising in all aspects of day-to-day employment matters, I also advise on employment-related immigration issues, labour tribunal disputes, complaints to the Equal Opportunities Commission regarding discrimination and/or harassment, investigations and multi-jurisdictional projects involving corporate restructuring, reductions in force, employee data protection and transfers of business. I use my linguistic and cultural skills to guide both Hong Kong and international clients using my fluent English, Cantonese and Mandarin, and approach all elements of my practice from an international, commercial and strategic standpoint.

The ability to connect with people is what attracted me to specialise in employment law. I relish every opportunity to contribute towards workplaces which are human-centric. I strive to recognise the whole person in every aspect of my work. Most importantly, the close client relationships and tight-knit team bond that are fostered through the years are what puts a massive smile on my face every day. I am so grateful for these relationships and for the challenges we experience and the fun that we have working together!
