Lawyer alliance suggested
    2019-03-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A DEPUTY to the National People’s Congress has suggested setting up a lawyer alliance within the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, through which lawyers with a single certificate can practice in the three systems of law.

At an interview with the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily in Beijing, deputy Chen Manqi, also a member of the executive committee of All-China Women’s Federation, said Guangdong has allowed partnership between mainland and Hong Kong and Macao lawyers, but the threshold is very high. In Hong Kong and Macao, 80 percent of the lawyers started business as sole firms.

In the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong and Macao Greater Bay Area, the planner requires building a legal system that meets the development of an open-ended economy and strengthens judicial cooperation between Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

“In the Greater Bay Area, an alliance of small law firms should be set up, and lawyers with the certificates issued by the alliance should be able to practice law through partnerships with other lawyers registered within the alliance,” Chen suggested.

The partnerships of lawyers within the Greater Bay Area could start with litigations regarding international marriages and inheritances. It then could be expanded to other areas like commercial and criminal cases.

“A legal aid center should also be established to offer consultations over international disputes,” Chen suggested.
