Hughes-Castell (Hong Kong) Ltd. was the first legal recruitment consultancy to target Asia and began recruiting lawyers from London to Hong Kong in 1985, with our Hong Kong office opening in 1986. Servicing both major law firms and multinational corporations and banks, we rapidly expanded our geographic scope to the Singapore market in 1993, opening permanently in 2001. Our China practice saw record growth, and in 2005 we opened in Beijing followed by Shanghai in 2011 to build on our extensive client relationships.
Over the years, we have maintained our status as Asia's premier legal recruiter, providing in-depth coverage of the Asia-Pacific region. Hughes-Castell has pioneered legal recruitment not only in Hong Kong and the PRC, but also in Singapore, Japan, Thailand and India. We have also undertaken assignments in Korea, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and the Middle East.
Founded by Helen Castell, a pioneer in legal recruitment, Hughes-Castell takes great pride in her legacy of personal, ethical recruitment advice based on deep-rooted knowledge and understanding.
