LAWFUEL – Law Firm News – Clifford Chance’s Asian funds and private equity teams have been honoured with three separate industry awards this week.
On 28 February, the funds team was named Best Law Firm for Asset Management in 2006 by Asia Asset Management magazine.
Today (1 March), Clifford Chance’s was voted Asia’s Best Law Firm (Fund Formation) and Asia’s Best Law Firm (Deals) for 2006 in Private Equity Online’s annual poll.
“The awards reflect the firm’s commitment to building the pre-eminent funds and private equity teams in Asia,” said partner James Walker, who leads the firm’s Asian funds practice.
“We have been working with our clients since the first funds were established in Asia, and we’re delighted that they continue to choose us as their advisors today.”
Private equity partner Andrew Whan has advised on many of the year’s most significant deals. “It has been a record year for private equity in Asia, with the high level of activity, arrival of more global players, and increasing convergence between the hedge fund and private equity industries.”
“Our leading private equity and funds teams work closely, enabling us to provide a well-matched, full life-cycle service to our clients as this convergence evolves.”
