    Contentious Trusts & Estates

    Contentious Trusts & Estates

    Hong Kong families are generally familiar with using different assets holding structures (including off-shore structures) to hold their family assets, businesses, real estate and investment portfolios. However, such structures may have been set up without the assistance from professional advisors or may no longer be fit for purpose which can give rise to disputes.
    We are one of the few law firms in Hong Kong with a dedicated practice in contentious trusts and estates, combining our expertise in advising private clients in their wealth and estate planning and resolving any potential disputes among family members.
