Marc WahaNorton Rose Fulbright

With five dedicated antitrust lawyers based in Hong Kong and also able to draw on practitioners with considerable competition law expertise from across the firm’s Asian network, Norton Rose Fulbright has the critical mass and depth of knowledge to seamlessly handle the full range of work for domestic and international clients as it pertains to Hong Kong specific and pan-Asian antitrust issues in both a transactional and litigation context. The team has been particularly active assisting clients in their dealings with the Competition Commission, both on investigations and enforcement actions. Led by the ‘vastly experienced and knowledgeable‘ Marc Waha, the firm successfully represented SiS as one of the respondents in the first enforcement action brought by the Competition Commission (the only one of the five respondents cleared of bid-rigging). The team has particular strength handling antitrust-related matters within core firmwide sector competencies, including transport and energy; notably, it has built up a strong track-record on behalf of aviation clients, including Cathay Pacific, which it recently advised on the competition issues associated with its acquisition of rival low-cost carrier Hong-Kong Express. Maxime Vanhollebeke is recommended for his ability to effectively advise international companies on  emerging antitrust regimes in East Asia, and Asian companies on global competition compliance issues.
