Fiona Chan is an associate in the Dispute Resolution practice of Nixon Peabody CWL in Hong Kong. With her dual education qualifications in both law and business, Fiona regularly acts on contentious civil and commercial matters involving listed companies, multi-national corporations, and high-net-worth individuals from diverse business sectors in Hong Kong, mainland China, and overseas across the globe.
My current practice focuses on civil and commercial litigation with an emphasis on shareholders’ disputes, contractual disputes, debt recovery, insolvency, defamation, land disputes, urgent injunction applications including Mareva injunctions, and alternative dispute resolution (including mediation and arbitration).
Apart from civil and commercial litigation practice, my experience also extends to commercial matters, probate and estate, matrimonial, personal injury, regulatory investigation, guardianship, and mental health proceedings.
My broad experience in serving diverse clientele in the civil and commercial litigation practice, coupled with my professional affiliations, enable me to better understand clients’ needs and serve clients with practical solutions and timely assistance in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
Hong Kong as a well-established legal service hub in Asia can play a key role in promoting and providing the necessary support for the “One Belt, One Road” and Greater Bay Area Initiatives. The implementation of these initiatives will create enormous demand for professional services, including legal and dispute resolution services.
With a well-established legal system and a legal profession that is well experienced in serving multi-jurisdictional clients in complex cross-border matters, Hong Kong is perfectly placed to play a pivotal role in providing the requisite legal and dispute resolution services and acting as an international dispute resolution venue when the mainland enterprises “go global.” In particular, the use of alternative dispute resolution including mediation and arbitration will be expected to be increasingly popular in resolving complex cross-border disputes.
Fiona has acted in a number of high profile landmark cases in the High Court and Court of Appeal and gave presentations, including the following:
University of Hong Kong, LL.B.
University of Hong Kong, PCLL
University of Hong Kong, B.B.A., Law
Solicitor of the High Court of Hong Kong
