Gall is a specialist dispute resolution law firm with a team of 15 lawyers making it one of the larger commercial litigation practices in Hong Kong. The partners are all City-trained lawyers and have extensive experience in a wide variety of litigation, mediation and arbitration.
Gall’s exclusive focus on dispute resolution sets the firm apart from other law firms in Hong Kong.
Gall has a strong contentious fraud and asset tracing practice. The team regularly advises on domestic and international disputes arising from commercial fraud, asset misappropriation and business crime. Much of the team’s work requires the management and coordination of proceedings and investigations in several jurisdictions. With a core team of experienced partners, assistants and support staff, the firm delivers a hands-on quality service to plaintiffs and defendants alike.
As a local independent dispute resolution practice, Gall is largely free of commercial conflict issues and has regularly worked with and been instructed by leading international law firms. On the basis of these established relationships and through its membership of international fraud groups, Gall is able to create strong international project teams specialising in tracing, freezing and recovering stolen or misappropriated assets at very short notice.
In prosecution, the firm takes immediate effective action to assist its clients in applying for orders freezing assets, preserving documents and facilitating the tracing of the proceeds of fraud. They also assist in and manage the ancillary issues that arise, such as internal investigations, PR reporting and liaising with forensic accountants and the appropriate regulatory authorities. Gall has well established working relationships with members of the Hong Kong Securities Future Commission, the Independent Commission Against Corruption, the Commercial Crime Bureau and Hong Kong Monetary Authority.
In acting for defendants our experience and knowledge of the complexities of fraud prosecution gives the team an edge in fighting allegations of fraud or breaches of fiduciary duties. With its clients’ reputation and livelihood at stake, Gall applies extensive litigation experience in dealing with Anton Piller orders, Mareva injunctions and disclosure orders to afford them the opportunity and time to their case.
