Hong Kong lawyer launches NewLaw flexible lawyering firm

March 2, 2018 Lesley Hobbs, the former head of client solutions for Lawyers on Demand in Hong Kong, has opened her own NewLaw firm: Cognatio Law. By her side is former interim COO of boutique CRB Tim Fawcett.

The Hong Kong-based start up will give support to in-house legal teams faced with pressure to reduce costs by providing experts at short notice without additional permanent employee costs.

The flexible lawyer strategy Cognatio aims to employ is a similar service to that of GPS Legal, a boutique launched in November by three senior lawyers from Baker Botts and Addleshaw Goddard, also in Hong Kong.
