Practice notes

Jocelyn is an Associate in our Asia Litigation and Dispute Management Group and our International Competition and Trade Group.  She specialises in advising clients on all aspects of competition, regulatory and administrative law as it applies to their practices and regulatory decisions and has practical experience in defending clients in regulatory proceedings in Hong Kong and China.

Jocelyn is described by clients as someone who understands “how regulators think” and is particularly well-placed in advising on regulatory matters, having both advised public authorities regularly on the application of statutory rules and defended commercial clients in compulsory investigation interviews and regulatory proceedings, in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.

Although based in Hong Kong, Jocelyn has real experience in representing European clients in investigations and proceedings in the People’s Republic of China (PRC).  She also regularly defends global as well as PRC-based clients in regulatory proceedings in Hong Kong.

Her recent work highlights include:

  • Defending the Hong Kong regulator of broadcasting and telecoms in Hong Kong High Court judicial review proceedings and advising it on issues affecting the industries, including the application of rules against anti-competitive conduct.
  • Advising a number of Hong Kong conglomerates on competition law compliance of their joint ventures and collaboration and conducting competition law compliance training for members of their senior management.
  • Conducting a competition risk audit exercise across all the business divisions of a Hong Kong property management and construction conglomerate.
  • Advising one of the world's largest container shipping lines on the merger control implications of a joint venture with a Chinese SOE in the marine services sector and defending it in regulatory proceedings in China.
  • Acting for a PRC power generation company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKSE) in the investigations and regulatory proceedings conducted by the HKSE in relation to its non-compliance with the Hong Kong Listing Rules and successfully negotiating a full and final settlement with the HKSE on its behalf.
  • Acting for two global banks in the investigations conducted by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and representing their personnel in compulsory interviews with the HKMA.
  • Acting for one of the largest global kitchenware brands in the defence of PRC legal proceedings brought against it by its supplier and appearing on its behalf in arbitral proceedings at CIETAC, Beijing. 

Jocelyn has recently undertaken a strategic secondment to our London Competition, EU and Trade team.  She is also a regular contributor to legal journals and practitioners’ guides and has recently co-authored the Hong Kong chapter on Dominance for the 2017 and 2018 editions of the Getting the Deal Through.
