Family Disputes

With many years of experience acting for families and family members in the many types of dispute that can arise between them, we understand the issues and sensitivities that these cases inevitably bring. Our team handles them sensitively, endeavouring to avoid unnecessary conflict where possible. We act for spouses in matrimonial proceedings, covering all issues arising from divorce including custody and children matters and financial claims.  

We also have experience representing family members who need to intervene in divorce proceedings to assert beneficial interests in assets subject to division.   

Couples may now choose to separate by going through mediation rather than the courts and with an accredited family mediator as part of our team we can work closely with separating couples to help them to understand the process as well as to guide our clients to ensure that the mediation can proceed smoothly. 

Apart from matrimonial matters, we also have extensive experience providing representation in probate, trusts and inheritance disputes as well as applications concerning the mental capacity of individuals.  We are able to help our clients during all stages of their family dispute, whatever form it may be.    

 Partner Jonathan Mok is the first and currently only family dispute solicitor in Hong Kong to be granted higher rights of audience (HRA) by way of exemption in civil proceedings. This enables him to represent and support his clients as their advocate all the way up to the Court of Final Appeal which clients find attractive for preserving their confidential information within our team.
