Hong Kong Competition Law Investigation Series – Part 6: Dawn Raids

26 May 2016
Mayer Brown Legal Update

If the Hong Kong Competition Commission (the "Commission") decides to open a formal investigation, it will have at its disposal a full arsenal of investigative tools to obtain evidence of infringement.

In particular, the Commission can carry out surprise on-the-spot inspections (so-called "dawn raid") at a company's premises.

A dawn raid can be a stressful event for a company and its employees. Companies should therefore ensure that they are well prepared for any potential dawn raid.

In Part 6 of this series, we will look at:

  • What to do when the inspectors arrive? 
  • What happens during an inspection? 
  • How can you protect your interests?
