Banking Litigation
Practice Areas
Representing over 50 financial institutions in Asia, Weir & Associates has a well-earned reputation as a business-minded, transaction-oriented law firm.


Litigation is a cornerstone of our legal practice. Companies from around the world, in many industries, retain our services when a Hong Kong or regional dispute arises.

An extension of our litigation practice is our specialized banking litigation services. We are well-positioned to represent clients before the Hong Kong courts and other non-public forums in response to investigative proceedings, including those involving financial regulators.

We act as lead counsel for financial institutions in regional matters as well, including disputes arising in mainland China. We have previously represented local and foreign banking institutions in Hong Kong regarding:

  • Matters arising from loans and guarantees;
  • Foreclosure actions arising out of loan defaults; and
  • Criminal or quasi-criminal offences involving banking and/or securities irregularities.

Our lawyers are also experienced in regulatory investigations, hearings, inquiries, arbitrations, appeals and reviews.
