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 Competition Ordinance anti-competitive regime is expected to come into effect in 2014 and is likely to have a fundamental impact on working practices, and the way in which a number of key sectors in particular operate in Hong Kong.
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.
