AUcKLAND Hong Kong


East Asia Transnational is a New Zealand based legal firm advising on Hong Kong law from New Zealand and offering a wide range of commercial law services to clients based in Hong Kong and China and also to those clients based in New Zealand, Australia and other countries in South East Asia. Our focus is on commercial and tax law in Hong Kong and we have a long association with several Hong Kong based legal firms. We also practice NZ commercial law in New Zealand and offer advice to local and international clients investing in New Zealand.


We are unique in being able to provide our services at charge out rates applicable to New Zealand, and not Hong Kong

For details of our services and our charge out rates, please check the specific information on this site


Our founder and principal is Timothy John Brears LLB(NZ) who is a solicitor of the High Courts of Hong Kong and New Zealand and also admitted to practice in the United Kingdom.
After practicing as a partner in a New Zealand firm firm for 15 years he moved to Hong Kong.


We do not quote a specific scale, as we do for Hong Kong work (set out below) but our charge out rate is between NZ$350.00 to NZ$500.00 per hour for New Zealand Work.
Some large corporates have chosen to go direct to large accounting firms in Hong Kong
