About Us


Donovan & Ho was founded on 3 June 2014. We have since expanded our office, multiplied our headcount, and have served more than 1,000 clients from over 20 countries.

The firm was founded with the goal of re-energising the practice of law by providing legal solutions that are usable and easy to understand. Our commitment is to communicate clearly – no legal jargon, just simple, effective advice.

The demands of the modern world mean more work and less time, and unlike traditional law firms we acknowledge the need to constantly innovate. We have adopted state of the art technology in document management and project management. We know that if we work faster and more efficiently, our clients benefit.

As part of our ongoing commitment to make legal knowledge accessible, we have also become best known for our efforts in educating the public on legal issues. We have more than 400 legal articles available for free on our website, read by more than a million viewers over the world. We have since grown this initiative to take on new ways to share what we know: our #LegalFlix series now shares valuable legal information through 2 minute videos and we collaborated with partners like Lexis Nexis to establish a COVID-19 resource hub for employment law issues.

We are dedicated to promoting awareness on common legal issues, and this is reflected in our work for our clients. We take pride in knowing that our advice is easy to implement, quickly comprehensible and business friendly.

Don’t just hear it from us – our work has been recognised by external publications such as the Legal 500, Chambers & Partners, Asialaw Profiles, ILFR1000, Benchmark Litigation and Asian Legal Business.
