Ince & Co advises Hong Kong Maritime Museum on its relocation
Ince & Co Hong Kong has recently advised the Hong Kong Maritime Museum on the legal aspects of its relocation from Stanley to Central Ferry Pier 8 overlooking Victoria Harbour in the central business district.
The law firm has acted as exclusive legal counsel to the Hong Kong Maritime Museum on its establishment and all operations since its inception as a concept in 2003 to the opening of the museum in its first premises at Murray House in Stanley in 2004.
The museum’s new, expanded galleries are said to represent more than 2,000 years of Chinese maritime history and culture, and include 15 permanent galleries that will be open to the public.
The museum opened on 25 February 2013.
