Hill Dickinson opened in 2013 in association with local firm Laracy & Co. Following successful completion of the three-year period of association required by local regulations, the two firms converted to a single firm, Hill Dickinson Hong Kong, practicing both Hong Kong and international law, on 1 April 2017. On the trading and international side, we assist traders, ship owners, charterers, and international group P&I clubs with trade and transport-related arbitration and litigation. The team handles cargo loss and damage claims, mis-delivery claims, ship mortgage enforcement, charterparty disputes, and admiralty work together with contentious marine, non-marine insurance and reinsurance matters.
On the commercial and insolvency disputes side, we act for financial services companies, financial institutions, turnaround management firms and court-appointed liquidators and receivers. We also act for high-net-worth individuals and their associated corporate vehicles. The team has extensive experience in all aspects of dispute resolution whether through litigation, arbitration or mediation. We regularly advise clients in relation to loan/payment defaults, insolvencies, receiverships, fraud, breach of fiduciary duties by directors and officers and trustees, shareholder disputes, professional negligence claims, investment product ‘misselling’ claims and the related regulatory/compliance investigation and employment disputes. The team is equipped to manage multi-jurisdiction litigation including PRC cross-border disputes and insolvencies.
Our lawyers are admitted in several jurisdictions including Hong Kong, England, Australia, New Zealand and China. Our local Hong Kong lawyers are fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
