King & Wood Mallesons partner Larry Kwok joins Hong Kong Competition Commission
King & Wood Mallesons has announced that partner Larry Kwok has joined the Hong Kong Competition Commission, a newly formed independent statutory body.

The Commission will be responsible for investigating competition-related complaints and for bringing public enforcement action before the Competition Tribunal. It will also advise on regulatory guidelines and other competition matters.
