Since the commencement of the Companies (Disclosure of Company Name and Liability Status) Regulation (Cap.622B) ("Regulation"), a subsidiary legislation of the Companies Ordinance (Cap.622) in March this year, practitioners and compliance professionals have been concerned about its impact on company operation. In particular, they are concerned about early indications from the authorities that full compliance means a company registered by both an English name and a Chinese name ("bilingual names") must use both names in all circumstances where its registered name is required to be displayed or stated under the Regulation.

Decision: The US Supreme Court recently decided two cases concerning contraception and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Both Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc.,and Conestoga Wood v. Burwell involved owners of closely held for-profit corporations that alleged they have “sincere Christian beliefs that life begins at conception” and that “it would violate their religion to facilitate access to contraceptive drugs or devices that operate after that point.” The owners in both cases asserted that four of the 20 contraceptive methods that are required to be covered under the ACA fell within that category.
