Our History

In Hong Kong, 15th October 1945, Dr. the Hounourable Pak Chuen Woo, C.B.E., J.P., licensed to practice as a lawyer in Hong Kong in 1940, founded a new law firm with a small staff of seven. In 1959, Mr. Wong Chung Hin, C.B.E., J.P. became Mr. Woo’s first partner.

Within a period of six decades, P. C. Woo & Co. has evolved into a sizeable firm with sixteen partners and staff of over one hundred. Rendering professional services of the highest standards in both a timely and cost-effective manner, we have built enduring professional relationships with clients in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and internationally.

In 1994, Mr. Moses Cheng succeeded Mr. Wong Chung Hin as Senior Partner, with Mr. Woo and Mr. Wong continuing as Consultants. Our firm was struck with a great sadness on 30th April 2008 at the passing away of Mr. Woo.

June 2002 marked the official opening of our Chengdu Representative Office. distinguishing P. C. Woo as the first Hong Kong legal firm to establish the vital link between Southwestern China and Hong Kong.

Guided by our motto 'Traditional Values, Innovative Practices', we established our Nanjing Office in late 2005, and our New Territories office on 8th August, 2008, concurrent with the opening of the 2008 Olympic Games.

In 2016 just after our 70th anniversary of the firm, Mr. Lester Huang and Mr. Henry Lai succeeded Mr. Moses Cheng as the co-chairmen of the firm. At the same time, Mr. Cheng has become our consultant.

In 2017 our partner-in-charge of Litigation department Mr. Peter Ngai has also stepped down to become our consultant.

We live today by the same values that have driven our success as we continue to improve our ability to serve clients in the future.
