    Importantly, it also takes into account the Hong Kong Patents Examination Guidelines (PEG) published by the Hong Kong Intellectual Property Department in 2020. Although PEG is not binding, it is the most important and practical reference that patent attorneys actually rely on. 

    The fourth edition further incorporates patent examination guidelines (as well as important case law considered by the guidelines) published by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), Australia, Mainland China, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

    eBookBook (Soft cover)

    Authors: ELG Tyler, Stefan HC Lo

    Butterworths Hong Kong Company Law Handbook – 25th Edition aims to deal with the intricacies of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) in an easily accessible form. This Handbook reproduces the text of the Ordinance as currently in force along with section by section annotations and examines the significant judicial decisions and rules of the court. The annotations also provide definitions of words and phrases, discussions on practical aspects and contentious issues with reference to each section, and other authoritative materials including cross-jurisdictional references.

    Readers may wish to refer to the Butterworths Hong Kong Company Law (Winding-Up and Miscellaneous Provisions) Handbook, which is a complementary text containing the remaining Parts from the "old Companies Ordinance" (Cap 32) that have not been repealed.

    As this series has been cited with authority in over one hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal, and Court of Final Appeal, this Handbook will no doubt be an invaluable source of information for practitioners, legal advisers, company secretaries, students and anyone interested in the laws governing companies in Hong Kong.

  4. View details Civil Procedure in Hong Kong - Seventh Edition
    Publication Date: March 2023
    Book (Hardback)eBook

    Authors: Eric Cheung, Carter Chim, Gary Meggitt

    In 2021, in addition to general updates for each topic that enable readers to keep abreast of the latest developments in procedural laws in civil litigation, this title has substantially revised the part on legal professional privilege to discuss the recent judicial developments both in Hong Kong and other common law jurisdictions and the unsettled areas in this regard. It also raises an interesting and important discussion as to whether “legal advice privilege” and “litigation privilege” should be treated as two “distinct conceptual animals” instead of “two branches of the same tree”, as explained by the Canadian Supreme Court in Blank v Canada (Minister for Justice) [2006] 2 SCR 319. How that may affect the scope and application of the two heads of privilege in Hong Kong remains to be seen.

    This seventh edition also includes an entirely new chapter on judicial review. Not only does it provide a step-by-step guide for those who may need to handle judicial review proceedings, but it also explains the boundary of judicial review by reference to the administrative court’s jurisdiction, the concept of justiciability, and the administrative court’s discretion. It is a user-friendly chapter, especially for those who are not familiar with judicial review.
