BUSINESS LITIGATION

Business litigation lies at the very heart of Gall’s day-to-day practice. Gall’s practitioners have extensive experience in dispute resolution through the mediums of litigation, arbitration mediation, and negotiation gained in all forums in Hong Kong.

Flexibility within Gall’s internal structure enables the firm to utilise a partner led team-based approach to complex litigation. The firm draws upon the legal and linguistic skills of fee earners with varying years of experience earned in Hong Kong and overseas jurisdictions. Gall ensures that it maintains an “around-the-clock” service to its clients, with the capability to obtain urgent relief from the High Court of Hong Kong.
