Dispute Resolution and Litigation

Dispute Resolution & Litigation - Hong Kong

Top-tier legal advice on all forms of dispute resolution

Cross-border dispute resolution is on the rise, nowhere more so than in the three main areas of our dispute resolution practice: compliance and investigations; international arbitration; and major commercial and financial litigation.

Our dispute resolution and litigation lawyers will help you reduce your risk. Whether you are involved in a dispute, in financial litigation, under investigation, or simply keen to protect your business and ensure full compliance, we can help.

Hong Kong continues to be the pre-eminent centre for resolving disputes in Asia and we have one of the largest Hong Kong teams specialising in dispute resolution. Investigations are increasingly highly localised, and require a thorough knowledge of local laws and customs. Our unique offering is augmented by the fact that we have fourteen offices in Mainland China, coupled with those in Europe and the Middle East. Corporates are increasingly looking to our network of offices to provide necessary insight – often long before an investigation.

We have an outstanding reputation for cross-border and international arbitration. As a complement to our international arbitration practice, for many years we have adopted appropriate mediation, conciliation and adjudication. We have achieved successful settlement by mediation of multimillion dollar disputes, which might to others, have seemed impossible to resolve.

The areas of law our dispute resolution and litigation specialists advise on include:

  • Litigation
  • Arbitration and adjudication
  • Mediation and conciliation
  • Investigations and raids
  • Financial disputes
  • Corporate disputes
  • Construction disputes
  • Employment and labour disputes.
"They make great efforts to achieve a real understanding of the specifics of each case, engaging closely with the relevant parties, who as a result make great efforts to identify, analyse and uncover the evidence needed to build and prepare a thorough and comprehensive case."
