Dispute Avoidance & Resolution

We pursue and defend multi-jurisdictional proceedings before the courts of Hong Kong and in domestic and international arbitrations. Where cases involve cross-border elements, we collaborate with law firms and counsel in other jurisdictions to provide seamless representation.

Before triggering formal proceedings, we help devise and implement creative non-litigation strategies to leverage alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, including senior management negotiations, conciliation, and mediation.

If formal proceedings cannot be avoided, we evaluate, plan, and execute case strategies that provide the best prospects for the prosecution or defence of the case. This includes identifying specific moments or inflection points during the life of a proceeding where negotiations may be leveraged to achieve a settlement and avoid trial.

Delivering legal services with price certainty is a fundamental value of GPS and this applies when representing clients in litigation and arbitration. To achieve this critical client objective, we scope and plan cases from the outset. This allows us to devise and adopt fee structures that provide our clients with greater levels of cost certainty including staged-fixed fees and outcome-based premium uplifts.
