Harneys Listco Dispute Unit (LDU)

Harneys Listco Dispute Unit (LDU) is a hybrid team of commercial and litigation lawyers formed to provide a dedicated resource for listed companies, their shareholders and onshore counsel in need of expert offshore law advice.

The first offshore specialist team of its kind, Harneys’ LDU is comprised of lawyers who have amassed unparalleled experience and insights advising on the full range of issues encountered during the lifespan of a company’s listing, with particular expertise in managing disputes involving listed companies. The team currently represents more listed companies in active litigation than any other offshore firm, and has advised on the offshore aspects of the highest-profile activist matters involving Hong Kong- and US-listed companies and fair value disputes in the Cayman Islands in recent years.

Harneys’ LDU lawyers are qualified in multiple jurisdictions and have leading international law firm backgrounds, both contentious and non-contentious. The multilingual group is comprised of members who speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin, and all of its pleadings, drafting and advocacy services are available in Chinese as well as English. The team also has strong relationships with other key service providers in this area, including onshore counsel, proxy solicitors, public relations specialists and other professionals. 

Their wide-ranging expertise includes advising listed companies and their shareholders at various stages of their growth, from initial public offerings, day-to-day compliance and corporate governance issues, to mitigating the risks involved in delisting. They regularly attend contentious EGMs and board meetings and frequently advise on defensive strategies to neutralise proxy battles, activist challenges and hostile take-over attempts, including litigation when necessary.
