Who's Who Legal Corporate Immigration

Eugene Chow is the principal of Chow King & Associates, a Hong Kong-based firm specialising in US, Hong Kong and international immigration and citizenship matters. Mr Chow’s boutique firm represents business investors and corporate multinational clients with employment visas and permanent residence, and also has a niche practice representing American citizens who wish to relinquish their US citizenship, as well as individuals in the acquisition of a second citizenship in various jurisdictions to facilitate visa-free travel, for tax-planning purposes or as a hedge against negative economic or political developments in their countries of origin.

Mr Chow obtained his JD from Boston College Law School. A member of the Pennsylvania and California Bars, he has been a California Board-certified specialist in immigration and nationality law since 1989. "Certified Specialist" is a designation conferred on lawyers with substantial experience in a specialty field, whose ability and experience in that field have been favourably evaluated by judges and other attorneys, and who have completed approved legal education programmes and passed a legal specialty examination.

Formerly on the board of two non-profit organisations which assist immigrants and refugees, Mr Chow is a frequent speaker at immigration conferences internationally and a regular contributing author to many legal publications including the 2006, 2010, and 2014 editions of AILA’s Immigration Options for Investors and Entrepreneurs; the Global Business Immigration Practice Guide by the Alliance of Business Immigration Lawyers (LexisNexis, 2012, 2014 – 2016 editions); Corporate Immigration Review (Law Business Research, 2012 – 2017 editions); and Immigration Law: Jurisdictional Comparisons (European Lawyer Reference series, Thomson Reuters) (first edition, 2013), now Business Immigration: A Global Guide from Practical Law, second edition, 2017).

WWL says: The “amazing” Eugene Chow is widely endorsed as "a pillar in the market who clearly knows his stuff". Sources add: “He is the grandfather of immigration in Hong Kong."
