Weir & Associates is pleased to announce that it has gained the approval of the Hong Kong Law Society to have Mr. Carlos Lobo, a Macau solicitor, to join the firm as a Registered Foreign Lawyer to expand our team of lawyers. We understand that Weir & Associates are the first firm to take this initiative in Hong Kong; Mr. Lobo joined the firm formally on 1st February 2020.

Mr. Lobo, who is a partner at MCL Law firm, is a well-established and experienced lawyer in Macau, with over 20 years of expert experience in the Macau and Portuguese-orientated legal field. His practice focuses on corporate law, where he regularly advises SMEs as well as corporations on matters related to the Macau gaming industry.
