Hogan Lovells and Shenzhen University host legal seminar on outbound tech acquisitions
In 2015, Hogan Lovells lawyers from Beijing, Washington D.C., Düsseldorf and Brussels from the antitrust, corporate, intellectual property and trade practice groups, as well as a professor from the law school of Shenzhen University, discussed the Chinese outbound regulatory rules, US national security and export control regimes, patent due diligence and antitrust and merger control issues faced by Chinese companies planning outbound technology acquisitions. After a brief introduction of the relevant legal rules, the speakers developed a lively panel discussion about a concrete and practical case study to "simulate" how a company should behave in an actual case.
In-house counsel and representatives from many important Shenzhen high-tech companies participated in the seminar. The event was also reported by a prominent local newspaper Shenzhen Special Zone Daily on November 10, 2015 (see the link here).
