AnJie Law Firm

10 January 2017

China

After opening its doors three years ago, competition boutique ANJIE LAW FIRM has risen quickly through the ranks of the Chinese bar. Zhan Hao, the firm’s managing partner, heads the burgeoning antitrust group, where he is joined by three partners in Beijing – including recently promoted Song Ying – and one in Shanghai. They cover the full antitrust spectrum, but particularly the behavioural side, and have been involved in some capacity in almost all the major NDRC probes, including infant milk, automobiles, liquid-crystal displays, telecommunications, insurance and pharmaceuticals.

Over the past few years, the firm’s antitrust group has pushed to significantly expand its portfolio in private litigation. The team successfully defended Sinopec against the oil sector’s first antitrust claim, brought by Yunnan YingDing Biodiesel, and represented Hitachi Metals in a suit related to the rare earth sector, which was brought by four magnet manufacturers. AnJie also represented Panasonic in a litigation brought by its distributor regarding a monopolistic agreement. The team has also handled various intellectual property-related antitrust investigations and litigations.
