Lexology – Government Investigations in Hong Kong 2020

How are government investigations conducted in jurisdictions around the world?  Would government authorities pursue enforcement actions against a corporation as well as its employees? What are the triggers and procedures of a criminal investigation? How should a corporation and its employees handle a “dawn raid” by the investigation authorities?

As a premier Hong Kong criminal law firm, Haldanes frequently tackles these domestic and cross-border investigation issues for multi-national corporations as well as their management and employees.  Our Partner Felix Ng, Associate Irene Lai and Trainee Solicitor Vanessa Wong are proud to contribute to the article “Government Investigations in Hong Kong 2020” which provides a comprehensive overview of this subject and summarises the latest criminal law developments in Hong Kong in 2019.

The article is published by Lexology, a renowned international publisher which runs a multilingual intelligence platform, with various top-tier law firms being its contributors including Skadden (US), BLC Solicitors (UK), Anderson Mori & Tomotsune (Japan), Lee & Ko (South Korea) and Baker McKenzie (Colombia).  It is now circulated worldwide particularly for private practitioners and in-house counsel with interest in white-collar crime matters.
