Janice Chew


Since 2018, JC Legal has strived to become the helpful hand for startups and SMEs. Being a startup ourselves, we truly understand the problems we are trying to solve. The firm’s award-winning and widely popular Startup Steward Programme as well as Virtual Legal Clinic empower entrepreneurs with bespoke legal solutions. The Startup Steward Programme gives entrepreneurs the peace of mind to grow the business by advising on all aspects of corporate law at fixed monthly fees, whereas the Virtual Legal Clinic enables anyone to ask a lawyer online for as brief as 20 minutes for instant directions at a fraction of hourly rates.

Janice is the mastermind behind Startup Steward Programme and Virtual Legal Clinic, showcasing how she has a distinct vision in turning risk into opportunities. Janice started her career as an advocate and solicitor in Malaysia in 2007, specialising in commercial litigation. She then earned her legal qualification in Hong Kong in 2014. Janice currently leads the broad practice of JC Legal and JC Corporate Advisory Sdn Bhd in cross-border commercial law, dispute resolution and regulatory compliance with her 15 years of practising experience. Within her legal profession, Janice was shortlisted twice as Young Lawyer of the Year at the ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2021-2022 and JC Legal was recognised as Venture Capital Law Firm of the Year in Legal Awards 2021 organised by Lawyer Monthly.


Janice Chew is recognised as one of the winners at LexisNexis® 40 Under 40 2022

“I humbly thank LexisNexis for this meaningful recognition,” remarked Janice Chew. “We have been hitting several milestones recently including moving into a new office space. None of these can happen without the overwhelming support from our trusted partners, loyal clients, and encouraging friends. On behalf of the JC Legal team, I promise to bring out the best version of ourselves to give back.”

Apart from legal practice, Janice is a serial entrepreneur in the B2B and lifestyle sectors and her business acumen and successful ventures were recognised on Prestige 40 under 40 in 2019. She is also active in the Malaysian community in Hong Kong, serving as Chairperson of the Malaysian Association of Hong Kong 2022-2023 and Trade & Services Subcommittee member of the Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (Hong Kong and Macau).
