Practice notes

Jocelyn is an Of Counsel in our Litigation and Dispute Management group. She has particular expertise in competition and trade laws and is a key member of our Competition, EU and Trade team in Asia.

She regularly advises clients on all aspects of competition law as it applies to their commercial arrangements in Hong Kong, the PRC and the EU. Her areas of work include competition law self-assessments, compliance, merger control, investigations, enforcement actions and judicial reviews. She also assists international clients with trade-related reviews, covering all aspects of sanctions and Hong Kong import/export control laws.

A number of clients have described Jocelyn as “well-rounded”, “very thorough and technically able”, with “a very good grasp of commercial dynamics” and “understands how regulators see things”. She has significant experience of guiding clients through Hong Kong and PRC regulatory enquiries and compulsory interviews in English, Cantonese and Mandarin, which have resulted in successful settlements (and in most cases, no further action being taken by the authorities).

She has particular sector experience in aviation, logistics, telecoms and broadcasting and financial services. Her international experience includes a six-month secondment at our Competition, EU and Trade team in London, where she gained practical experience of advising clients on EU and UK competition law and trade-related disputes. She obtained the Postgraduate Diploma in EU Competition Law from King’s College London in 2018.

Examples of Jocelyn’s recent experience include advising on:

  • Hong Kong competition enforcement actions;
  • a HKD 5 billion worth disposal of a budget airline by a PRC-based conglomerate to an international airline and successfully securing unconditional clearances from competition authorities in a number of jurisdictions in Asia; and
  • the application of various sanctions and import and export control regimes to a major global freight management business, as well as the passenger and cargo businesses of an international airline headquartered in Asia.

Jocelyn is a regular contributor to practitioners’ guides and has recently co-authored the Hong Kong chapter on Dominance for the 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 editions of Getting the Deal Through.
