Hong Kong's New Competition Ordinance - The Rules, Risks and Roadmap for Your Business

On 22 June 2012, Hong Kong's first cross-sector competition law was gazetted as an Ordinance. The new law applies to anti-competitive behaviour affecting markets in Hong Kong, whether that behaviour takes place in or outside of the jurisdiction. As infringements will attract significant penalties, and a new Competition Commission will be empowered with wide-ranging investigatory powers, the law is set to dramatically alter the business landscape in a jurisdiction that has traditionally been seen as a bastion of free market principles with minimalist regulatory intervention.

Please join us for a one hour in-house counsel seminar on the new law, to be presented by two of our firm's leading Hong Kong competition lawyers: John Hickin and Philip Monaghan. The seminar will build on previous Mayer Brown presentations on this topic, moving beyond a summary of the law and timetable for enforcement to explain what it means (now and going forward) for common types of business practices. Our presenters will also discuss the different steps Hong Kong businesses should consider taking to prepare for this new regulatory environment.
