Presenter's Biography:

Ian Mann is Harney's Asia managing partner and the long-term head of the Litigation, Insolvency and Restructuring practice group in Hong Kong. He is a leading offshore litigator, senior tactician and thought leader.

Ian specialises in restructuring, insolvency, shareholders' disputes and contentious trusts. He is an experienced advocate and continues to appear in Court regularly. He has been involved in every major recent restructuring in the region involving offshore entities. Ian is also a specialist in cross-border and conflict of laws dilemmas. He regularly appears on behalf of elite families and is usually retained on a long-term basis for strategic global offshore litigation advice.

Ian is described in the Legal 500 2019 APAC rankings as 'quite simply the best offshore lawyer in Hong Kong' and is regarded as 'one of the go-to lawyers in Hong Kong for BVI and Cayman disputes'.
 
Outline:

Shareholder activists acquire shares in listed companies to effect change by removing directors, lobbying for policy decisions, influencing disposal or restructuring of assets, demanding dividend payments and more. Sometimes the battle is fought by proxy war at an EGM, and other times in the media. As a last resort the battle is taken to the Courts, often the offshore Courts, of BVI and the Cayman Islands, where the majority of companies listed on the HK Stock Exchanges are incorporated.

In this seminar we discuss:

1. Activist techniques
2. Proxy wars and EGM's
3. Minority shareholder Court remedies
4. Disrupting public offer schemes of arrangement
5. Disrupting take private mergers
