Civil Cases

In D-Law, the records are a simple log of the type and date of court cases filed as well as the parties involved, and are suitable for those who need to conduct a due diligence review or research of the below nature:

  • Company background information (as filed with the HK Companies Registry at the time of the case) such as addresses, names of directors, shareholders, share structure and value
  • Civil court cases relating to a particular company and/or its directors and shareholders in Hong Kong; and if so, how often and the nature of the claims against them
  • Credit-worthiness of a particular company/party by checking if any case records were made against them by financial institutions, creditors and/or the Inland Revenue Department of Hong Kong
  • Property and/or addresses to confirm if writs have been issued to a particular company/party, and/or how often writs have been issued to a particular address

So whether you're conducting legal research, screening potential employees or identifying high-risk credit applicants - our specialized service solutions are aimed at making that decision better, clearer and more validated.
