That's a wrap: Harneys Hong Kong Litigation and Restructuring Seminar

Harneys Litigation and Restructuring Seminar took place at Eaton Club in Hong Kong on Monday 14 October 2019.

The afternoon seminar began with a panel on cross border fraud with Julie Engwirda (Harneys), Peter Glanville (FTI Consulting), P.S. Hau (Charles Chu & Kenneth Sit) and Marianne Rajic (In-house Counsel) speaking. The panel discussed "oh no" moments when discovering and identifying fraud, protecting assets from further dissipation, tracking down the wrongdoer, injunctive relief and key takeaway points from recent decisions. 

Chai Ridgers (Harneys), Joanna Charter (Clifford Chance), Tom Seward (Houlihan Lokey), Warren Lee (Yu Ming Investment) and Edwin Kam (Value Partners) spoke on the second session on advanced restructuring. The panel discussed Thomas Cook, changing investment strategies, HK listing rules, China Agrotech, recent cross border decisions and predictions for future restructuring opportunities over the next 12 months.

An entertaining mock hearing was held for the final presentation, providing a demonstration for the audience on what an offshore hearing really looks like and how a provisional liquidation application would play out regarding fraud and assets in jeopardy. Philip Jones QC (Serle Court) acted as the presiding offshore judge, with Andrew Johnstone (Harneys) and Ian Mann (Harneys) as Counsel for the Applicant and Respondent. 

Thank you to all the panelists and attendees of our annual event. We have received some fantastic feedback on the quality of the panel discussions and look forward to returning in 2020.
