3 September – (LAWFUEL) – Mallesons Stephen Jaques has been named Hong Kong Environmental Firm of the Year by Asian Counsel’s Firms of the Year 2008.
The winning firms are based on votes and testimonials by close to 400 senior in-house counsel across Asia and the Middle East who participated in Asian Counsel’s annual Representing corporate Asia? survey. Respondents were asked to identify which law firms were their preferred external counsel in specific practice areas across the region.
Mallesons partner, Christopher Tung said: “ We are delighted to receive this award, particularly as the results are determined by client feedback.”
“We have been actively involved in environmental and sustainable development matters in Hong Kong, China and around Asia for many years. We are one of the few firms to have a sophisticated and dedicated Asian environmental practice team. This result is recognition of the confidence our clients have in our market knowledge, skills and experience.”
The winners were formally announced in the July/August 2008 edition of Asian-Counsel.
