Competition Law

Overview

Hong Kong’s free market economy thrives under clearly defined rules that ensure open and fair competition. In this dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, we advise businesses and consumers alike on compliance, best practices and individual rights.

The Competition Ordinance, which applies to all sectors of the economy, prohibits conduct which may prevent, restrict or distort the level playing field. Price fixing, output limitation, abuse of market power or anti-competitive mergers can have severe repercussions for offenders. We help business owners navigate the pitfalls of this strictly regulated area of law.

Likewise, we act in the public’s best interest where breaches occur. We understand consumers expect to be treated fairly with a broad range of products at reasonable prices. Open competition is in everyone’s best interest. Our legal team is here to assist.
