Litigation involving the Chinese Community
Taylor Hampton has a dedicated litigation team aimed at the Chinese Market. We would be delighted to discuss any claims or contentious matters involving the Chinese community both in the UK and internationally.
Taylor Hampton is proud of its premier litigation service and we have enormous experience and expertise in taking legal action and resolving commercial disputes. We are also experts in media law and frequently bring proceedings to protect our clients’ reputations, amongst other things.
We understand a claim may arise in a multitude of ways and, whether it is a dispute involving a commercial contract, business competition, or financial institution, our litigation solicitors are able to assist you and take you through the complicated and daunting legal process.
Our expertise includes the following areas:
- Commercial litigation
- Property litigation and building disputes
- Tenancy disputes (both business and residential)
- Rights of forfeiture or rights of possession
- Corporate litigation
- Financial litigation
- Privacy and phone hacking claims
- Intellectual Property
We will investigate whether you already have insurance in place to cover any legal fees. We may be able to assist in particular cases (especially involving the media) in acting for you on a “no win no fee” basis. The introduction of these agreements has ensured access to justice, regardless of income.
The United Kingdom lays great emphasis on the importance of upholding the rule of law and international obligations. Developing economies, like the so-called BRICS nations, are also working hard to emphasise their willingness to provide a rule of law framework for business; none of which is as long-standing, consistent, sustainable and developed as the legal framework in the UK.
Our litigation team sees many Chinese clients and international businessmen wishing to bring their disputes to the UK Commercial Courts. When deciding on where to trade and grow their business, the rule of law can be a pivotal consideration. Our litigation team is also experienced in acting for claimants wishing to serve claims outside the jurisdiction.
Where appropriate, we favour alternative forms of dispute resolution including mediation and arbitration. Our long experience means we know what to expect and how to achieve results. We never lose sight of the importance of customising our approach to the needs of our clients, whether they are a large corporate or a private individual. We seek to obtain the optimum outcome for our clients.
Our Chinese litigation specialist can guide you through the complexity of legal proceedings and is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese.
