Firm Overview:
Hill Dickinson Hong Kong LLP works with its associated firm, Laracy & Co, and Hill Dickinson’s offices in Singapore, Greece and Monaco to service a global client base. Best known for its expertise in commercial litigation, international arbitration, and contentious shipping and trade matters, associated firm Laracy & Co also has non-contentious capability. Damien Laracy, principal of Laracy & Co, has an active arbitration practice and also sits as an arbitrator. Tony Jex, consultant with Laracy & Co, is a notary public. Mike Mallin, partner at Hill Dickinson Hong Kong LLP, has relocated from Hill Dickinson’s London office and is now based in Hong Kong, specialising in wet marine work.

Main Areas of Practice:
Together, the two firms offer a broad range of legal services. Laracy & Co handles complex international commercial litigation and arbitration, as well as more straightforward domestic disputes. It assists with insolvency and debt recovery matters, banking disputes, sale of goods disputes, shareholder disputes, joint venture disputes and interim relief applications (including Anton Pillar orders and injunctions). The firm regularly provides advice concerning the validity of arbitration clauses, and the enforceability of judgments and arbitration awards. In a regulatory context, the firm advises company directors and others involved in the management of listed companies, as well as employers and employees involved in regulatory investigations. On the non-contentious side, Anthony Jex has practised in Hong Kong for 25 years. His team advises clients in relation to corporate/commercial matters, business sale and purchase, real estate sale and leasing, trusts and wills, employment issues, and insurance regulatory matters.
On the shipping side, clients consult Hill Dickinson Hong Kong LLP in respect of misdelivery claims, ship mortgage enforcement, charterparty disputes, and Admiralty work generally. The firm advises banks, traders, ship owners, charterers, underwriters and the international group of P&I clubs.
