Civil Litigation & Dispute Resolution


Haldanes has a highly experienced team of civil litigation lawyers focusing on commercial litigation, capable of conducting cases at all levels of the Hong Kong Court system from first instance through to the Court of Final Appeal as well as arbitration proceedings and mediation.

Highly Experienced in Complex Commercial Disputes and Multi-jurisdictional Litigation

Our lawyers have particular experience as dispute resolution advisors and considerable knowledge in the conduct of complex commercial disputes and multi-jurisdictional litigation.

Our key is to work closely with our clients to achieve practical and cost-effective results.

Our civil litigation team know lengthy and expensive litigation is seldom the best answer, and whenever possible, we aim to help clients resolve disputes with minimum cost and disruption to their lives.

Strategic Approach to Litigation, Arbitration and Mediation

The Civil Justice Reform implemented by the Hong Kong Judiciary for the past decade has seen an increase in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, particularly mediation, to resolve disputes.

At Haldanes we set great store by this and employ practical, cost-effective and less confrontational methods to mediate settlement negotiations. In fact, several of our practitioners have obtained accreditation as mediators, capable of being separately instructed to conduct mediation for parties in dispute.

However, if legal proceedings can’t be avoided, Haldanes’ civil litigation lawyers have the experience and expertise to more than meet the challenge and ensure our clients get the results they deserve.
