Haldanes wins China Business Law Awards 2020 – Competition & Antitrust

Haldanes has won the “Competition and Antitrust” award in the China Business Law Awards 2020, alongside seven other international firms. The award is based on nominations from China-focused in-house counsel, senior corporate executives and legal professionals globally, in conjunction with evaluations of each firm’s notable achievements and landmark cases in the past year.

Review from China Business Law Journal:

“Haldanes is one of the first few Hong Kong law firms with substantive experience in advising clients on competition and antitrust issues, after the city’s Competition Ordinance came into force in 2015. The firm advised an international fashion brand and an international watch and jewelry group on the competition implications of potential anti-competitive agreements, and provided practical solutions to avoid a contravention. In another case, its team worked with US attorneys to defend an investment banker in a cross-border price-fixing case involving complex financial products.”

Our competition law practice is spearheaded by Partner Felix Ng who commented, “We are deeply honoured to have received this recognition which highlights the stellar performance of our Competition Law team. It is very encouraging to be recognised by our clients and peers for our excellence in this relatively novel practice area.”

Over the last few years, Haldanes has advised numerous corporate and individual clients on Competition Commission investigations, and assisted them to navigate the Competition Ordinance and various guidelines and leniency policies. We have also delivered seminars to listed companies and authored the Cartels and Leniency Review” published by the Law Reviews in the United Kingdom.
