Hong Kong, which is governed under China’s one country, two systems policy, maintains legal and economic systems based on common law, which is different from mainland of China. Hong Kong itself is not only a mature market in which many foreign companies operate, but is also a focal point for investment in China by foreign companies. In addition to being a hub for commerce and logistics in global trade, it is also a place for dispute resolution, including international arbitration by the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC) and the ICC. Moreover, it has become a vital base for Chinese companies expanding overseas, including obtaining financing through listings on the Hong Kong Exchange.
We have extensive experience in advising on transactions, investments and disputes in or in connection with Hong Kong and are well positioned to provide timely and appropriate advice based on our collaborative relationships with local law offices in Hong Kong.
