China’s Anti-Monopoly Law came into force in August 2008. It will affect many companies operating in China. There are heavy fines for infringements of the law and threats of negative exposure for those who don’t fully understand how these laws operate.

High profile merger control issues have already attracted international media attention. There is a real prospect that China will become the third crucial place, in addition to the United States and the European Union where merger filings will have to be made in global mergers and acquisitions.

Getting to grips with the real impact of the legislation is not easy; this book will give you a depth of understanding you will not find simply by reading the relevant legislation and official materials. This work, written by experienced China-based lawyers at Herbert Smith LLP – a leading international law firm – contains a unique description of the legal position both on paper and in practice, including where there is room for manoeuvre in areas that are unclear.

This book includes a section with a comprehensive analysis of competition law in Hong Kong. It discusses important sector – specific competition law regimes in telecommunications and broadcasting, as well as proposals for general non sector specific competition law in Hong Kong.
