The Legal 500 Series, now in its 27th year, is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal referral guide. More than 250,000 corporate counsel are surveyed and interviewed globally each year. The Legal 500 is an independent guide, and firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit. It is the only guide to truly reflect the needs of corporate counsel by focusing on the strength in depth of the teams (practice and associates) rather than simply list individual partners.
MWKA has once again been recommended in the following two areas as a recommended and leading legal firm in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2015 rankings.
- Dispute Resolution
- Corporate and M&A
The IFLR1000 (International Financial Law Review) is the guide to the world’s leading financial and corporate law firms and lawyers. It ranks law firms based on the feedback from clients, in-house counsel at national and international, private and public institutions, as well as peers in the legal markets it covers. The first rankings were published in 1990 and they currently research over 120 jurisdictions worldwide. IFLR is part of Euromoney, a global news company that focuses its research on financial markets.
Compiled by a team of dedicated legal journalists based in New York, London and Hong Kong, the IFLR1000 is the only publication of its kind to focus on the leading law firms for corporate finance worldwide.
In the 25th edition of IFLR1000 for 2015, MWKA has been recommended in the Mergers & Acquisition category under the Financial and Corporate sector.
Asialaw Profiles is a comprehensive guide to the leading domestic and regional law firms in the Asia-Pacific region.
