Presenter's Profile:
Mr. Clemence Yeung

Mr. Yeung was called to the Bar in 1997.  Prior to that he was admitted as a solicitor in England and Wales and in Hong Kong and practised as a solicitor in the litigation department of an international firm.  He was a contributor to Halsbury's Laws of Hong Kong Volume 18(1) Maritime Law (Butterworths) and has authored a book on the law of unjust enrichment in Hong Kong.

Course Outline:

This presentation sets out to explore both the Hong Kong and English case law on freezing injunctions.  It focuses predominately on the mareva injunction - from the earlier days after its invention to the very present, when there are emerging an increasing number of decisions which showcase its utility as a pre-emptive relief available here to litigants in foreign proceedings.  In the practical session participants will have the opportunity to consider a case study and review draft documentation for the application of a worldwide mareva injunction.
