Our Mr. Mathew Liu advocated in the Companies Court of the High Court of Hong Kong, and successfully applied for a Court Order pursuant to Section 42 of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) for removing falsified documents wrongfully registered on the Companies Registry.


In his published written Decision, The Honourable Mr. Justice Harris noted the unusual circumstances in which the application arose, as it would appear from evidence that the 1st defendant had caused the documents to be filed for reasons which had not been explained. The learned Judge accepted Mr. Liu’s submission that this was an appropriate case in which to order that the documents which should never have been filed are removed from the Companies Registry.


Besides applications involving the Companies Registry, our Litigation Department has abundant experience in a wide range of cases before the Companies Court, e.g. winding-up and bankruptcy petitions, liquidators’ applications and board room disputes. While working closely with Senior Counsel and Counsel, our litigators are always ready to stand on our own feet before the Court to make written and oral substantive submissions in appropriate cases.


This case is assisted by our Trainee Solicitor Ms. Shirley Yu.
