Eviana Leung is a partner in Nixon Peabody CWL’s Hong Kong Dispute Resolution practice, specialising in commercial litigation and marine disputes.
Eviana is an experienced litigator in both contentious and non-contentious practices covering cross-border disputes and matters. She regularly acts for Mainland, foreign and local corporations, and private clients, ranging from state-owned enterprises, listed companies, liquidators, receivers, senior management, start-up companies to high net worth individuals.
Eviana is fluent in both written Chinese and oral Mandarin. She also speaks fluent Cantonese and English.
The focus of my practice is on China and I mainly advise on liquidation, re-structuring, listed company internal investigation, shareholders’ disputes, trade conflicts, recovery of high value debts, arbitration, injunction, and other procedural matters.
I offer practical solutions and strategic planning to accommodate clients’ business and personal needs. I advise both contentious and non-contentious matters including cross border and international trade disputes, company liquidation and individual bankruptcy, corporate re-structuring and schemes of arrangement, company matters, shareholder disputes, breach of directors’ duties, corporate internal and forensic investigations, maritime cases, insurance matters, regulatory issues, and enforcement prosecutions.
A crucial part of the future of the Hong Kong legal system will be its ability and opportunity to connect and work with our Mainland counterparts. We have already seen a number of arrangements entered into between Hong Kong and the Mainland judicial authorities to strengthen the resolution of cross-border disputes, including the recognition and enforcement of court judgments and arbitral awards in both jurisdictions. The scope of these arrangements will no doubt be streamlined and expanded in the future, which will be welcomed by lawyers and businesses alike. The Greater Bay Area Legal Professional Examination allowing experienced lawyers in Hong Kong to obtain Mainland practice qualification is another big step towards integration into the national development plans, allowing Hong Kong lawyers like myself to provide greater assistance to clients in the adjudication and enforcement of their legal rights in cross-border disputes. I am fortunate to experience and be part of the significant integration process, and very much look forward to working closely with clients to achieve successful and satisfactory outcomes in resolving their disputes.
