Biglaw in HK is still pretty grade/law school conscious, barring some other value you can bring (like native Mandarin maybe, prior legal experience in China. But even then, I imagine that there are enough native Mandarin speakers in the T14 to fulfill that need to a good level, though I do know someone who got an interview with a biglaw firm's Beijing office with meh grades at a T50). If your grades don't make you competitive for biglaw in the US (and below median at a T20 is not particularly competitive for biglaw), then it's not going to be much different in HK.
