The legal battle between two brothers over Hong Kong's famous Yung Kee roast goose restaurant took a dramatic twist yesterday when the city's top court gave the go-ahead for it to be wound up. But the five judges on the Court of Final Appeal delayed issuing a formal winding-up order to give both parties 28 days to discuss the possibility of one side buying out the other's shares. If a deal cannot be reached, the liquidator will put the Central restaurant - run by the Kam family that founded it 73 years ago - up for auction. Background: End of a Hong Kong-style roast goose saga as court allows family restaurant to be wound up Leung Sui-kwan, widow of Kinsen Kam Kwan-sing who launched the original legal action in 2010 against younger brother Ronald Kam Kwan-lai, said: "The court's decision has given my late husband justice. I hope both sides can talk about the matter and seek a consensus. It takes two sides to do so, not just one." The court battle revolved around a struggle between the brothers after their father, Kam Shui-fai, died in 2004. Ronald took his shareholding to 55 per cent by taking over a sibling's stake. He appointed his son as one of three directors alongside the brothers, leading to accusations from Kinsen that he was excluded from the management. Kinsen, whose side owns 45 per cent, then filed a petition seeking to either have Ronald buy his shares or for the company to be wound up.

"We have given them an offer. It's just that they rejected what I would say is a fair offer," said Carrel Kam Lin-wang, son of Ronald. He stressed his side had tried hard to reach a settlement but suspected the other side wanted to wind up the company as a bargaining ploy. Hardy Kam Shun-yuen, son of Kinsen Kam, dismissed the other side's "offer". "They didn't give us a price. In fact, we gave them a price to buy our shares. They did not accept it and did not even give us a counter offer. They said they did not want to talk about price for now," he said. "If one side is willing to sell and the other side is willing to buy, why can't we both tell the price we want?" BACKGROUND: Life after the goose feud: brothers open new restaurants in wake of Yung Kee battle Neither side would say how much they were willing to offer or accept, but the court heard earlier that the restaurant was estimated to be worth HK$1.5 billion. The dispute took an ugly turn earlier when Mak Siu-chun, the mother of Ronald and Kinsen Kam, publicly accused Ronald and his family of causing Kinsen's death. Background: Goose cooked here: Hong Kong restaurant has enough local ties to settle dispute in city, one family member tells another in court A lower court previously ruled it was not within the jurisdiction of Hong Kong courts to order Yung Kee Holdings to be wound up as the company was registered in the British Virgin Islands. However, the top court said the restaurant's business had a sufficient connection to Hong Kong as the shareholders and directors of the company were Hong Kong residents, the company's assets and business were located here, and its income was derived from business in the city. It also found there was a mutual understanding that the founder of the restaurant, Kam Shui-fai, wanted Kinsen and Ronald to run the business together and that Ronald's side had not properly consulted the other side in the business.
