GPS acts for clients in asset recovery matters, including the enforcement of local and foreign judgments and the recognition and enforcement of domestic and international arbitral awards. Representations often involve coordination with co-counsel and other professionals across jurisdictions to devise and project manage case strategies with a particular focus on investigating, identifying, tracing, and recovering assets.
Our team includes solicitor advocates with higher rights of audience who can simultaneously advise clients and appear before the Hong Kong courts. This allows us to provide streamlined and agile representation to obtain urgent judicial relief in critical situations where assets are at high risk of dissipation or removal from the jurisdiction of Hong Kong.
We devise and implement commercial and customised strategies with the paramount objective of maximising recovery cost-effectively and expediently.
Our strategies include:
A selection of representations by our team include:
We recognise that the allocation of resources to an asset recovery project is an essential consideration for clients. Where appropriate, and subject to local laws, practices and regulations, GPS works with clients to explore how projects can be funded through alternative fee arrangements or external funding (such as litigation funding).
Our lawyers range from mid-level to senior lawyers including specialist lawyers who are at the top of their fields. They have a range of private practice and in-house experience across a range of practices and industries. Our lawyers are highly motivated and entrepreneurial individuals who are “self-starters” and thrive in commercial environments. They possess sound business acumen and common sense - key attributes in senior lawyers. All of our lawyers undergo a rigorous interview and selection process.
As GCRemote is a division of GPS, not only will clients have the right lawyers seconded or deployed into their organisation, but they also have the benefit of the following:
