Shareholder disputes have existed for as long as there have been companies and are becoming an everyday occurrence in the corporate world. “A Practical Guide to Resolving Shareholder Disputes” is intended to serve as a ready reference, a checklist, and a source of practical guidance for business owners, investors, financial advisers, in-house counsel, and legal practitioners who are involved in this area.


Apart from outlining general principles and practice, this is the first book on the subject that provides specific treatments for different kinds of companies, such as private companies, listed companies, family companies, and non-Hong Kong companies. The authors have outlined the procedural and legal considerations for various types of actions, including derivative actions, unfair prejudice petitions, and just and equitable winding up. Interlocutory applications in shareholder disputes and the most recent local decisions are discussed in detail, and extensive references are also made to illustrative cases from other common law jurisdictions, like the UK and Singapore.


This second edition will fill an important gap in the growing range of Hong Kong legal textbooks on shareholder disputes and is essential reading for practitioners, researchers, and students interested or engaged in this area of law. Further, aside from the numerous updates on Hong Kong case law, more references have also been made to Singaporean cases and statutes in this second edition to benefit not only Hong Kong readers but also to make the book more relevant to Singapore and other Commonwealth readers.
