Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Litigation and Dispute Resolution Legal disputes are, unfortunately, an inevitable consequence of Hong Kong’s status as Asia’s leading financial hub and trading centre.
With the growing complexity of commercial transactions, we take a global strategic approach to resolving disputes for our clients, with the aim of achieving efficient outcomes, including simplifying the litigation process and actively seeking solutions through negotiation and mediation.

We pride ourselves in conducting cases in a timely and cost-effective manner. We aim to improve the cost-effectiveness of cases by ensuring that we understand your business and commercial objectives. To better assess your specific needs, we will render cost estimates where possible to enable you to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of your case. Where appropriate, we will streamline the litigation process and encourage and facilitate settlement.

Our Litigation and Dispute Resolution team represents both Plaintiffs and Defendants in the High Court of Hong Kong and the District Court of Hong Kong in commercial and civil disputes; for example: Broad range of contractual disputes including debt recovery

  • Matters under the Companies Ordinance (Cap 622)
  • Shareholders, partnership and trusts disputes

  • Injunctions - including obtaining Court orders to freeze assets
  • Torts - including negligence claims
  • Landlord and Tenant
  • Employment
  • Defamation
  • Probate
  • Bankruptcy and insolvency

It is important that you seek legal advice without delay, if you are involved in a dispute or you have a claim brought against you. The preliminary stages of litigation are very important because the steps you take at the outset may significantly affect the future conduct of the proceedings.
