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 four main areas of our dispute resolution practice: compliance and regulatory investigations; white collar crime; 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 commercial dispute, under regulatory or criminal 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 civil and criminal 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.
