Hong Kong Company Law & Practice

HKCP, published since 1993, is the pre-eminent introduction to company laws and regulations and their practical application in Hong Kong. With four updates annually, HKCP provides an extensive coverage of legal issues associated with Hong Kong’s Company Law, from incorporation and share capital, management and administration, to winding up, receivership and dissolution. With an emphasis on practical aspects, it offers strategic solutions to help minimise an organisation’s risk exposure. Readers can benefit from the expert insight in how to achieve regulatory compliance and deal with various corporate governance issues.


HKCP offers two volumes: one volume on the Companies Ordinance and related legislation and the other volume on commentary on all aspects of company law in Hong Kong.


Other than insightful commentary, HKCP contains helpful checklists for the busy practitioner, summaries of recent developments affecting the company law regime, as well as references to local, regional and international landmark cases. It also comes with various sample company forms for easily downloading and a monthly Corporate Law Briefing e-newsletter. To enable quick and easy location of information, a comprehensive Topical Index, Section Finding List and Case Table are included.


HKCP is updated regularly to ensure that it is comprehensive and covers the most recent and important company legislation. This two-volume publication is an invaluable reference for company officers, corporate lawyers and company secretaries.
