Banking and financial disputes frequently involve investigations by the Hong Kong regulatory and law enforcement authorities, such as the Securities and Futures Commission, the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, and the Commercial Crime Bureau of the Police Force. Our banking litigation lawyers have extensive experience in assisting financial institutions navigate the complex issues arising from parallel investigations by the authorities and legal proceedings by investors.
