Randall Arthur, an experienced Hong Kong Solicitor Advocate, concentrates his practice on complex Hong Kong and cross-border commercial disputes involving Asia, in addition to matters related to international judgment enforcement, offshore asset recovery, insolvency, and financial products and services disputes.
Mr. Arthur represents clients in Hong Kong and other jurisdictions in complex fraud matters, with a particular emphasis on identifying and freezing assets in Hong Kong and obtaining other interim relief in aid of local and foreign proceedings.

In cross-border matters, he often represents multiple stakeholders in debtor-creditor disputes and advises appointment takers, directors and shareholders on insolvency administrations.
Mr. Arthur has also, on numerous occasions, acted for and against banks, investment funds and financial institutions in complex disputes, both before the Hong Kong courts and in Hong Kong-seated arbitrations.
Before joining Kobre & Kim, Mr. Arthur practiced in a Hong Kong litigation firm, focused on insolvency litigation, corporate dispute resolution, fraud and asset tracing, and international judgment enforcement.
