Court of Final Appeal - Winding Up Foreign Companies in Hong KongOn 11 November 2015, the Court of Final Appeal (the “CFA”) handed down its decision ending the 8-year family feud between members of the second-generation owners of the much-loved Yung Kee restaurant. The CFA ruled that Yung Kee Holdings Limited (the “Company”), be wound up, but gave the parties 28 days within which to discuss a share buy-out. The decision has attracted the close attention of both Hong Kong’s legal community and fans of the iconic family restaurant as it represents a landmark determination on principles concerning the Hong Kong Courts’ jurisdiction to wind up foreign companies.
