Lawyers Will be Done

Oasis suggest you take the advice of ByAirMail but
No harm in shopping around either to ensure a competitive price .
A self made will is a disaster waiting to happen
Copying from a "foreign" ie non HK will can also be an even larger disaster waiting to happen
wills may need certain specific legal terms to give effect to certain specific bequests and is one area where simple English may not be best !!
A competent solicitor will be able to draft a will that sets out your intentions in respect of all your assets
definitely worthwhile to get a competent lawyer for this one
Google and look at the Law Society of HK homepage for a list of lawyers

ps Lawyer and Competent Lawyer are NOT necessarily interchangeable terms especially in HK when the pursuit of profit sometimes gets in the way of professional ethics and competence !!!
