Hong Kong Awards, Seminars, Workshops and More – A Busy and Inspirational Autumn for Cognatio Law


It has been a very busy few months for NewLaw firms in Hong Kong – at least for one of the major forces behind Hong Kong’s NewLaw boom, Cognatio Law CEO & co-founder Lesley Hobbs. Here are a few of the highlights from her very busy 2018 schedule:

Eighth Annual Asia Women in Business Law Awards

In early November Lesley Hobbs attended the Eighth Annual Asia Women in Business Law Awards and was thrilled to see so many talented women gathered together in one room. Truly inspirational! Congratulations to all the nominees and winners of the eighth annual Asia Women in Business Law Awards. Kudos to Legal Media Group, Euromoney for celebrating and highlighting female legal talent across all corners of the world.


AIG’s "Celebrating Women in the Workplace" Event

Several days later she was inspired once again, this time by a motivating half day conference organised by AIG-- "Celebrating Women in the Workplace" highlighting how and why diversity is so important in the workplace. The event also supported a very worthy cause, with all profits going towards The Women's Foundation HK 婦女基金會 Financial Literacy Program! #CelebrateWomenAIGHKEX

Another event that our CEO Lesley Hobbs was proud to attend was the AmCham 15th Women of Influence Conference and Awards 2018. A big shout out and congratulations to all this year’s nominees and winners. Let's all be influencers! #AmChamHKWOI

On 21st November Lesley Hobbs attended #BritChamHK sponsored seminar “The future of the professions as the machine era begins”.

Ending November on yet another inspired note, Lesley Hobbs attended the #SheMeansBusiness Instagram workshop sponsored by The Women's Foundation HK. Lesley is a truly inspirational leader, always looking for ways to improve her business skills and paying it forward. A big thanks goes out to Facebook for supporting female entrepreneurs and to The Women's Foundation HK for its commitment to improving the lives of so many women and girls in Hong Kong.


Hong Kong is well known for being a place for hard-working individuals to succeed, and the team behind Cognatio Law success is no exception! We are looking forward to seeing what 2019 will bring us.
