With attorneys residing in Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo, Skadden has the resources to handle the largest and most complex matters involving entities throughout the Asia Pacific region.

Skadden's dedication to pro bono work is a core aspect of our culture. Our founders believed not only in a lawyer’s social responsibility, but that we all benefit when the legal system is accessible to everyone. Those views continue to thrive at Skadden, where we have dedicated nearly 2 million hours firmwide to pro bono clients over the last 10 years alone. The firm gives billable hour credit for pro bono work, and our attorneys are involved in a wide variety of charitable endeavors. From day one, we encourage those at the firm to find a cause that sparks their interest and to match that interest to legal needs in our communities. Our pro bono work is diverse and far-reaching. In Hong Kong, it includes work related to the rights of migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers, and ethnic minorities; nonprofit incorporation and fundraising guidance, tax exemption and operations; legislative research; community development; and cases involving survivors of sexual violence.
