What the team is known for

Robust litigation practice advising on contentious matters related to construction, IP and finance. Frequently acts on shareholder disputes, professional negligence, employment and insolvency litigation and fraud claims. Offers longstanding experience handling complex international instructions. Advises clients across a range of sectors, including insurance and financial services, and often acts for domestic and international banking clients.

Strengths

A client describes the firm as "a top law firm that provides quality service and especially stands out for its practical advice that is feasible and not coated in mind-blowing legal jargon that the layperson is unable to understand." The client adds: "Also, no matter how big or small the legal issue, the standard of service provided remained the same."

A second client likes that the team consists of "wartime lawyers who are confident in technical skills but are also strong lateral thinkers, not just focused on the legal micro details but also the macro strategy."

Work highlights

Advised employees and minority shareholders of China Shanshui Investment on a share ownership dispute involving a trust action for recovery of over 2,000 employees’ shares.

Notable practitioners

Ivan Ng is singled out by a client for being "responsive and offering sound advice that achieved the results we wanted." His practice encompasses share ownership disputes, injunction applications and bankruptcy disputes and recovery actions.

Jamie Stranger counts major professional services providers and investment banks as clients, regularly handling fraud disputes, estate disputes and professional negligence claims. A client notes that he is "very deeply into all the details of the case, proposes good strategies and is proactive, which is very important as we're not that familiar with the Hong Kong legal system."
