Once I was requested by my clients to reacquire shares of a real estate company, and ultimately to retrieve real estate worth hundreds of millions of HK dollars. The corresponding share transfer agreement has been declared illegal in the Court of Mainland China because the shares were illegally seized by criminal means, and so to get back the shares, I requested a confirmation of this judgement at the Court of Second Instance of Macau.
One of the arguments I received from the respondent is that the case at that time was in retiral in Mainland China, hence the request of confirmation was not legitimate, and we should only wait for the result of the retrial. To consolidate the arguments of our side, after a deep analysis of the relevant provisions of the retrial system of Mainland China, and intense discussion with the lawyers of Mainland China, I requested them to provide a special legal opinion, and with all these preparation, a very profound and comprehensive reply was presented to the court. At last, the judgment of Mainland China was being successfully confirmed, and the clients ultimately retrieve real estate worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
In the past years, I have handled a lot of legal affairs involving different regions. The valuable experience is my strong foundation for my further cooperation with Mainland China and Hong Kong lawyers. With enthusiasm, we have established the Joint Venture Law Firm – ZLF Law Firm in Zhuhai, which is the first law firm with strong alliance between Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau. All these factors contribute to making us able to provide to our clients with the best possible service, time and time again.
