The Executive Committee of ACC Hong Kong invites you to the following presentation, hosted by Walkers.
Food and drinks will be provided. 1 Law Society of Hong Kong CPD point has been accredited. New York and California Approved Jurisdiction policy may apply.
TOPIC: HK-listed, Offshore-Incorporated: Shareholders at War
The Walkers team will use one of the recent HK listco disputes (where the company is a Cayman Islands company) as a case study to illustrate how in-house counsel and the onshore and offshore lawyers can work effectively together in protecting the client's interests: in that instance, injunctions and other protective measures to counter mismanagement of the listco and prevent, among other things, a substantial share placing to a related party. The talk would be focussed on the three jurisdictions involved (Hong Kong, PRC (where the business was based) and Cayman Islands).
