Hong Kong continues to be the pre-eminient centre to resolve disputes from China, Asia and across the globe. As one of the largest dispute resolution and litigation teams in Hong Kong, we bring together a dedicated team to help clients achieve optimal negotiated, mediated or litigated outcomes.
Our insight is unrivalled. Members of our team are regularly invited by government bodies and industry associations to discuss Hong Kong’s unique advantages as an international legal hub for dispute resolution in China Mainland and the Asia-Pacific region.
Leaders in disputes and bespoke arrangements between the Mainland and Hong Kong
Cross-border disputes and dispute resolution continue to rise, nowhere more so than in the four main areas of our dispute resolution practice: compliance and regulatory investigations; white collar crime; international arbitration; and major commercial and financial litigation.
We are one of the few firms in the market with the knowledge and practical experience to successfully resolve cross-border disputes involving parties in Hong Kong and the Mainland.

There are very few firms with our depth of cross border dispute resolution insight. We were consulted by PRC government authorities on policy and legal developments involving Hong Kong and China Mainland reciprocal judicial cooperation. We are also among the first successful applicants to make use of the reciprocal arrangement on interim measures in aid of arbitrations between the Mainland and Hong Kong.
