Business disputes & civil litigation

Business disputes generally involve significant sums of money and are "high stakes". These types of cases are usually complex and often end up in litigation. Typical claims are:

  • Fraud
  • Theft of Funds
  • Breach of Contract
  • Negligence
  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
  • Disputes between Shareholders, Partners, Officers, and Directors
  • Malpractice
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Quiet Title by Adverse Possession
  • Trespass
  • Nuisance
  • Easements
  • Punitive Damages

Litigation is our forté. Although we handle some transactional and simple cases, most of our clients come to us to help them with a serious or complicated legal case.

What is a "complicated" legal case? Many aspects of a lawsuit can be complex. The dispute may relate to a complex and new area of law, a very confusing and complicated factual problem, a large litigation involving many parties, an opposing party or attorney who likes to fight hard in court, a big case with a lot of money at stake, an opposing party who has a lot of money to spend litigating against you, or simply a case involving Chinese custom and language that non-Chinese speaking firms cannot handle.

We have considerable experience and expertise in going to court. Our firm has been practicing law for over 40 years. As a result, our rates are a little higher than most Chinese law firms. However, if you want the best litigators in court, you need to find an attorney with considerable experience and comfort in the courtroom.
