Alfred Ip
Partner at Hugill & Ip Solicitors (Hong Kong)


A qualified solicitor in Hong Kong since 2000, Alfred is skilled in helping individuals and their families manage personal and wealth-related matters, including trust and probate (both contentious and non-contentious), family and mental capacity issues.

He is one of the few probate practitioners in Hong Kong who are vastly experienced in both non-contentious and contentious probate issues. He regularly advises clients on long term estate planning, ranging from the proper drafting of a will to constructing complicated trusts, airtight from any potential perils.

Alfred is appointed by Court as an administrator in estate disputes and advises professional administrators on legal aspects of estate administration, both in Hong Kong and internationally.

In contentious cases, he acts for clients in probate actions, ranging from propounding the Will to having an executor removed. For clients requiring help in estate administration problems such as declaratory relief or disclosure of account, Alfred will apply to Court for the necessary directions and orders.

Alfred’s professional skills are enhanced by his membership of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (“TEP”), and of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. He is a CEDR accredited Mediator and a Notary Public.  His practice is recognized by all major legal publications including the Legal500, Chambers and Partners, Private Client Global Elite, Benchmark Litigation, Who’s Who Legal, Doyle’s Guide and Citywealth.

He is also familiar with legal issues surrounding the LGBT community and marriage equality, and acts for both husband and wife in family issues: from divorce to children matters, from pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements to adoption.

In March 2017, Alfred was appointed to sit as a Deputy District Judge.

Alfred is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English. He’s also learning Italian.
