Litigation & Dispute Resolution

In addition to general contractual or commercial disputes, our team of solicitors and legal executives are particularly experienced in prosecuting or defending claims concerning:

  • Banking & Finance Litigation
  • Commercial Fraud
  • Competition
  • Criminal Litigation
  • Cybercrime & Internet Fraud
  • Defamation
  • Employee Dispute & Litigation
  • Family Law Dispute & Litigation
  • Insolvency & Directors’ Liabilities
  • Insurance Dispute & Litigation
  • Intellectual Property Dispute and Litigation 
  • Professional Indemnity
  • Real Estate Dispute & Litigation

The successful conduct of litigation requires thorough familiarity with the court procedures and in-depth knowledge of the relevant areas of law. When the protection of our client’s interests calls for such urgent measures, we will employ procedural weapons such as asset-freezing orders and civil search orders as may be necessary to prevent a defendant from dissipating his assets or destroying the evidence, as the case may be. We have been successful in such applications on many previous occasions and we take pride in our track record.

Many countries have taken emergency measures such as quarantine, travel restrictions and special work arrangement, which have led to disruption to business, trading and travel, as well as closure of factories and schools. Facing the unprecedented challenges, some contractual parties are looking for ways to relieve themselves from performing their obligations under the contracts. This article will explore whether a force majeure clause in a contract or the common law doctrine of frustration may be of assistance to them.
The calculation of limitation period for “midnight deadline” cases – Does the clock start ticking on the stroke of 00:00?
When calculating the limitation period for a claim, it is the usual case that the time starts to run on the subsequent day on which the cause of action accrues.
