innovative legal services.


Our practice includes a wide range of disciplines, our lawyers having experience in litigation and corporate work involving, amongst others, commercial, insolvency, corporate restructuring, schemes of arrangement, information technology, joint ventures, sale and purchase of shares and assets, receivership and construction. Each matter is given individual and unique attention. Solutions are client-oriented, and are customized for each individual client and matter, both contentious and non-contentious.

Litigation and Dispute Resolution

At hky, our essential sustaining element is litigation. We are an exception to the myth that lawyers who fight matters in court are hostile and unapproachable. Far from that, we communicate effectively, we are persuasive, we have excellent interpersonal skills, traits that we hold in high regard, especially when we explain our fee system to our clients.


As a natural consequence of having seen the many badly drafted contracts and agreements that become the subject matter of dispute in court, we learn quickly to adopt a discerning approach when we craft and review contracts and other legal documentations. Ultimately, it takes a litigator to spot the fine print in a commercial contract.
