Hong KongHK Flag

More than 100 in-house lawyers in Hong Kong turned out to be educated in the nuances of social media platforms on 12 October at an ACC Hong Kong function entitled “Social Media Discovery”.

The lunch seminar, sponsored by Clifford Chance and Star Anise Legal Recruitment, explored related topics including discovery tools available to be used for employment disputes and investigations, the legal implications of using such tools, and considerations when formulating social media policy.

Annie Tang, managing director of Star Anise Legal, moderated discussions while speakers Anita Lam, head of employment at Clifford Chance, and Rachel Cheng, senior associate at the firm, provided interesting analyses.
