About Us


Vision and Mission

AHL Legal is Australia's largest Chinese law firm, and we pride ourselves in being able to provide top quality service for clients that require assistance in navigating the legal systems of Australia and China. In light of the ever-growing proximity between Australia and China, we work to make bridge the gap between the differences in their legal systems and business environments, so our clients can reap the benefits of Australia and China's tight-knit relationship.

Overview and Progress

The strengthening of business ties between China and Australia has led to us specialising in litigation and corporate law. However, our growing business continues to cater to most areas of law that our clients are involved with, and we hope to expand in order to cater to every Chinese-Australian in need, both new and established. All our offices in China have permanently stationed Australian lawyers, and we continue to work on important and sensational cases in both countries, using our expertise and language proficiency to service our clients in both Australia and China.



From our beginnings as a law firm only providing migration law and personal injury services to Chinese clients, to us being the leader in our field, AHL Legal has been a part of many developments in Australia and its law.

AHL legal was founded in 1994 by Hanbing Shen. In response to an increasing demand for legal services tailored to Chinese needs, we established our Campsie branch in 2003. To strengthen our links with China and provide up-to-date services to our clients, offices and partnerships in cities such as Shanghai and Beijing were set up between 2009 and 2015. In the meantime, new branches in Brisbane and Melbourne extended our services to the Chinese-Australian community beyond Sydney.

Along the way, AHL legal has been the trailblazer for ground-breaking cases regarding Chinese-Australians here in Australia. The “Victoria Park Case” that we handled effectively changed the way the property sector works in NSW. We have changed the status of Chinese-Australian lawyers in the legal community, from previously working at the fringes of the legal sector, to being at the heart of landmark cases.

Community Service Commitments

AHL legal is deeply committed to promoting legal knowledge amongst the public, in both Australia and China. We are frequently invited to host talks at different Chinese business organisations, as well as Chinese cultural and educational institutions. Giving back to the Chinese-Australian community in the form of Pro Bono work is also of great importance to us, a high-profile example being the Lin family murders case.
