Gabriel Azedo, a previous lead partner of
Grant Thornton Hong Kong and member of the international network’s
leadership board, is involved in a legal dispute after two clients
filed writs against him demanding a combined total of $12.1
Azedo left the firm last month although he ceased to be a
partner in 2008 after the claimants filed their allegations in
separate writs in a Hong Kong high court.
Angela Gardner is suing Azedo and former
client Senning International for breach of contract and breach of
trust. She is demanding $9.8 million.
Silva name Azedo and Grant Thornton Hong Kong and are seeking the
transfer of an account of trust assets allegedly held on their
behalf by the defendants or a minimum of $2.3 million in
Kong’s commercial crime bureau on 20 October 2009.
