Chinese legislators have released and implemented a series of legislations since late 2020 as supplements to the existing legal framework in preventing "interference with domestic affairs" by foreign entities. Currently, the lack of live cases studies and vague legal interpretation created ambiguity, confusion and myth over the understanding and perception toward the Chinese Anti-Foreign Sanction Law.


In order to clarify such ambiguity over the applicability and the range of jurisdiction of the law, the Chamber invites our members from the financial service sector to hear from Hong Kong-based Benjamin Kostrzewa, Foreign Legal Consultant (Counsel) at Hogan Lovells law firm.


Benjamin previously served as assistant general counsel at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR), where he handled U.S.-China disputes and negotiations, World Trade Organization (WTO) disputes, and free trade agreement (FTA) negotiations. Currently working out of Hogan Lovell's Hong Kong and Washington, D.C. offices, Benjamin advises clients in the ever-changing area of international trade law with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region.


*The event is for Financial Services Forum members only.
