Presenter's Biography:

Mr Samuel Li is the Sole Proprietor of Samuel Li & Co., Solicitors & Notaries. He qualified as a solicitor in Hong Kong in 1983. He passed the Notarial Examination in 1995 and was admitted as a Hong Kong Notary Public.

Samuel now focuses on notarial practices. In the preceding 20+ years as a Hong Kong Notary Public, he has an excellent track record in providing notarial services to clients including overseas government, and world's leading brand companies. More than 60 countries and regions on world's 5 continents have accepted Samuel's notarised documents.

Samuel has presented 36 seminars to professionals to demonstrate notarial practice, with total audience exceeding 3,380.

Samuel has received 14 Pro Bono Legal Services Awards & Professional Volunteer Service Awards respectively from the Home Affairs Bureau of the HKSAR , The Law Society of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Council of Volunteering in recognition of his promoting legal knowledge and professional volunteering services to the public. In 2014, Samuel was nominated by the Hong Kong Law Society to participate in the Second Leadership Bauhinia Volunteer Award competition organized by the Agency for Volunteer Service.

In March 2014, the Companies Ordinance (Cap.622) came into effect. It has brought with it a number of important changes in relation to execution of company documents.

"Expensive and long drawn-out litigation about the execution of a document by a company can be avoided by taking more care over compliance with the formalities at the time of execution…." per Mummery L.J. in Williams v Redcard Ltd [2011] 4 All ER 444.

Notarial instruments which certify due execution of documents now have evidentiary status in civil proceedings by virtue of the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance 2014, which also came into effect in 2014.

Because of globalization of businesses, the number of company documents executed in Hong Kong and used overseas is ever increasing every year. These documents are often of high value and are required urgently.

This course aims to provide an insight into the legal and practical aspects of execution, authentication and legalisation of company documents by way of recent court cases and real world examples.
