We cover all of the following:
- Conducting pre-acquisition due diligence, post-acquisition risk assessment and integration to reduce the risk of successor-liability issues;
- Designing, implementing, enforcing and stress testing regulatory compliance policies and procedures so our Hong Kong based lawyers can assist our clients in having adequate procedures to prevent bribery, corruption and other nefarious conduct;

- Responding to government investigations, liaising with governmental and regulatory authorities; and
- Identifying, advising on and implementing remediation measures, and conducting legal compliance training services here in Hong Kong.

They involve combining our legal expertise, our deep understanding of business practices and legal and regulatory systems, particularly in Hong Kong and mainland China, and our knowledge and experience in dealing with data and technology related issues.
Based in Hong Kong, our team of compliance lawyers have first-hand experience in dealing with governmental and regulatory compliance authorities. They represent and successfully advocate for clients in defending investigations and enforcement proceedings. We advise and assist clients in managing dawn-raids, the execution of search orders and compliance with disclosure orders, protecting clients’ rights in urgent investigations. We conduct internal investigations efficiently and effectively to understand the issues under investigation, prepare clients to properly defend the investigations and/or enforcement proceedings, and to remediate any identified issues.
