Strategically managing your competition law risks

An intimate understanding of Hong Kong and global competition laws with an
unrivalled depth of local knowledge enables us to optimise our clients' business practices.

Competition law enforcement worldwide is increasingly aggressive, exposing your business to potentially significant risks. Competition law should be a key consideration in all effective business planning.

For Hong Kong companies, the new competition rules may require a major shift in behaviour and culture. Even multinational corporations already familiar with the competition/antitrust laws of other jurisdictions will benefit from advice bringing their local business practices and policies in line with Hong Kong law.

Our lawyers and in-house competition economist  have an impressive depth of experience advising companies and senior executives in a wide range of antitrust investigation and litigation matters and high profile regulatory cases, as well as on cross-border and domestic transactions.

Our clients' commercial considerations are our main focus. Our unique understanding of the local business environment together with our expertise in competition policy and enforcement enables us to assess your risk profile and to come up with solutions tailored to your needs.
