DeHeng Involved in Launch of China Antitrust Law Journal


Frank Fine, the head of DeHeng Brussels and of the firm’s international antitrust practice,  has announced that he is launching the China Antitrust Law Journal (CHALJ), the first of its kind of the market.  In formal terms, the Journal is a collaboration between the China Institute of International Antitrust and Investment (CIIAI) and LexisNexis, the US-based legal publisher. Mr. Fine has been the Executive Director of the CIIAI since its establishment in 2012.


CHALJ will cover PRC and Hong  Kong antitrust issues, as well as non-Chinese antitrust developments of concern to a global audience. The first issue of CHALJ will be published in the Spring of 2017, and will be available in both paper and electronic formats.


Mr. Fine, who will be the Journal's Editor-in-Chief, claims that CHALJ will be of great interest to antitrust regulators, in-house counsel, private practitioners and academics who are seeking more in-depth analysis of antitrust issues inChina.  Mr. Fine will be supported by Prof. Qi Huan of the China University of Political Science and Law, who is also Managing Director of CIIAI.  Prof. Qi will be the Executive Director of the Journal.  Mr. Michael Gu, partner of Anjie Law Firm in Beijing, will be the Managing Editor.


Mr. Fine notes:


"I've been involved in the Chinese antitrust community for the last four years.  I've gotten to know a lot of the players, both in and out of government, and we are hopeful that they will be active contributors.  We want this journal to be cutting-edge and we will be looking for a high intellectual standard."


Ray Camiscioli, head of Product Portfolio at LexisNexis comments:


"CHALJ adds to our impressive and ever-growing list of titles in the antitrust field.  We are proud to be introducing the first journal onChinaantitrust law.  Our clients have already informed us that they welcome this new publication, so we are confident that it will be well-received by the market.  We also know that the Journal is in good hands.  Frank Fine has been working with us since 2003 and is the General Editor of our treatise, European Competition Laws."


Mr. Fine says that Chinese regulators, judges and academics are most welcome to contribute their work to CHALJ, even in the Chinese language. Although the Journal will be published solely in English, CHALJ anticipates translation of articles submitted by Chinese public officials.     


For the time being, Mr. Fine will act as the portal for author submissions.  His email address is frank.fine@skynet.be.


The CIIAI is part of the China University of Political Science and Law, which is based in Beijing. The CIIAI's objectives are to promote transparency and fairness in proceedings as well as policy convergence. Its activities include the organization and management of workshops for regulators/judges and high-level professional seminars. The CIIAI is 100% privately-funded.
