TOPIC: Amendments in HK Corporate Insolvency Regime

For some years, Hong Kong’s corporate insolvency regime has been seen as increasingly out of date and ripe for amendment, particularly after the new Companies Ordinance came into force in 2014. 

Following a long consultation process, the primary legislation governing corporate insolvency, the Companies (Winding Up and Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance, has been amended, with the amendments coming into effect on 13 February 2017. 

Richard Hudson of Deacons will explain the main changes that have been enacted, look at some of the key transitional provisions, and will discuss the further amendments that may be made in the near future. This talk will be of particular interest to in-house counsel who encounter corporate insolvency issues during the course of their work.

SPEAKER: Richard Hudson, Partner, Deacons

Richard specialises in litigation and dispute resolution and has extensive experience of a broad range of litigation matters, including contentious insolvency, regulatory and investigatory matters, contentious probate, employment, professional indemnity and disciplinary matters, shareholders’ and partnership disputes and major commercial cross-border litigation.

Richard regularly advises office holders and creditors in relation to all aspects of contentious personal and corporate insolvency matters and companies and individuals in relation to criminal and regulatory investigations and proceedings, disciplinary action and internal investigations involving fraudulent employee conduct. Richard has experience of investigations and proceedings brought by the ICAC, the SFC (most notably investigations in relation to the alleged mis-selling of minibonds), the FEHD, the HKICPA and the Law Society of Hong Kong (most notably, acting as the intervention agent for solicitors’ firms closed by the Law Society). Richard also regularly advises clients in relation to the enforcement of foreign gambling debts in Hong Kong and generally in relation to the operation of Hong Kong laws relating to gambling.
