Chambers is delighted to announce Carter Chim has been re-appointed as Non-Governmental Advisor (NGA) to International Competition Network (ICN) by the Competition Commission (Hong Kong).

Having appointed Carter as an NGA since 2018, the Competition Commission has recognised Carter’s “valuable contributions” and he has now been re-appointed for a further two years, until 2022.

Carter was a Legal Counsel of the Commission in 2015-2016.  Prior to joining the Commission, he was instructed by the Commission to contribute to the drafting of the Commission’s Guidelines.  As an NGA, Carter contributed to the Commission’s training programme “Advising on the Competition Ordinance: A Practical Course for Lawyers who are not Competition Law Specialists”, which has been postponed until further notice due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.  He also made a presentation on Hong Kong competition law to the ICN Cartel Working Group in a webinar and attended the ICN Cartel Workshop held in Tel Aviv as a Hong Kong representative in October 2018.

Carter has developed a large “Competition Law” practice, and is regularly involved in advising both public and large private parties in relation to Competition matters as well as providing training to law firms and large corporations.

Aside from a busy practice, Carter taught competition law at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2016-2019.  He is now also a Senior Lecturer of the Faculty of Law of The University of Hong Kong.

Carter’s re-appointment strengthens Chambers’ Competition Law team. For any enquiries concerning in-house seminars or training please contact our Practice Development Manager, Taylor Goodwin – [email protected] for more details.
