I have worked with Alex on a mutual client with Alex being based in Hong Kong and I being based in London. Alex is very responsive, clear and shows thorough knowledge.

Alex is an exemplary law professional. His extensive knowledge in estate planning, family trust, and US & HK Law is a given. It is his excellent written and verbal communication skills and patience that helped us navigate through complex procedures and issues with ease.

One of the finest lawyers I know. Alex is extremely knowledgeable in his field of trust and estate law, advising on Hong Kong and US law. He is very patient with clients in explaining very complex tax regulations and offers excellent advice.

I am an Australian lawyer and have briefed Alex Chung to assist me over the last few years for a particular client group in relation to their U.S. tax and citizenship issues. Throughout this time Alex has been of invaluable assistance to us and has provided timely advice as and when required.

Private client review:

Alex is a young but talented lawyer. Alex is able to provide one-stop trust and estate planning advice from both Hong Kong and US perspectives. He is also one of very few US tax lawyers in Hong Kong who can explain complicated US tax rules in Cantonese.

Co-worker review:

Reliable, smart and friendly.

Private client review:

Alex is a very approachable advisor. He is highly attentive to detail and is always responsive to emails. As a young gentleman, Alex far exceeds our expectations with his extensive knowledge, both technical and practical, and his ‘can do’ spirit. His attempt to make our case one of his top priorities despite his busy schedule is simply impressive.
