Dispute Resolution and Litigation
Hong Kong has a well developed law system, including trade regulations, labour laws, corporate taxation, as well as other components of business laws. The law of Hong Kong regulates our commercial activities and social lives. However, it takes more than papers and trust to operate effectively in the real world.
When there are conflicts or disagreements on the interests of two or more parties, they may need professional advice in settling the dispute. Broadly, dispute resolution refers to the process of resolving conflicts or disagreements between two or more parties.
Dispute resolution can be used to resolve a wide range of disputes, including disputes between businesses, disputes between individuals, and disputes between organisations. It can be used to resolve disputes related to contracts, employment, property, and many other areas.
Dispute resolution can be done by multiple approaches, such as negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation. Each approach has its own advantages and disadvantages, and we can help you decide the most appropriate one based on the specific circumstances of your case.
In general, negotiation is a direct conversation between the parties involved in the dispute, with the goal of reaching a mutually acceptable solution. Mediation involves a neutral third party who helps the parties communicate and work towards a resolution. Arbitration is similar to mediation, but the arbitrator’s decision is binding. Litigation is a formal legal process in which a case is presented before a court of law and decided by a judge or jury.
Litigation in Hong Kong can be a complex and time-consuming process, and it is generally considered to be a last resort after other methods of dispute resolution by most lawyers in Hong Kong, such as negotiation, mediation, and arbitration, have been exhausted. The process of litigation involves filing a claim, serving the claim on the defendant, and then going through a series of court hearings, including a trial, to determine the outcome of the dispute.
