The firm’s long-term commitment to Hongkong Land is testimony to the quality of the buildings and our leadership in serving the legal services community. We believe our Central Portfolio, which encompasses world-leading banking, financial, legal and professional services firms, creates significant business development value while also supporting tenants in acquiring and retaining the very best talent.”
