Hong Kong airport protest A passenger stands with his luggage as demonstrators gather and block departure gates at terminal 2 of the Hong Kong International Airport during a protest in Hong Kong, China, on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019.

Hogan Lovells has helped Hong Kong’s airport secure an interim injunction to stop protests that led to hundreds of flights being canceled over two days and a violent clash with the police.

The Airport Authority, a regular client of Hogan Lovells, obtained an injunction from the High Court on Wednesday that effectively prohibits protests in the Hong Kong International Airport, one of the world’s busiest, and helps return it to normal operations.
