26th November 2012: LawFuel.com – Asia Law Firm NewswireCharltons Solicitors has been named Hong Kong’s top Independent Law Firm in the Euromoney Legal Media Asia Women in Business Law Awards 2012.
The firm picked up the prestigious award in the face of strong local competition in recognition of its flexible work arrangements to help women advance in the legal profession. Approximately half of Charltons’ associates are women, as are most of its partners, with women in the majority in the Beijing and Shanghai offices, both also managed by women.
This is the second time in three months that Charltons has won a major industry award – in September, also in a strong field of contenders – it was named Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2012 at the Macallan Asian Legal Business Awards.
Julia has now also developed a keen interest in resource-rich Myanmar, and will open an office in the capital, Yangon, next month.
