Baker & McKenzie Tops International Law Firm for Women at the Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Awards 2012

23 November 2012
Asia Pacific, 23 November 2012 − For the second consecutive year, Baker & McKenzie was awarded “Best International Firm for Women in Business Law” at the Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Awards held in Hong Kong. The Firm also won "Best Firm for Minority Women Lawyers" and "Best International Firm in Hong Kong". Jennifer Van Dale, Baker & McKenzie Partner in Hong Kong, was recognized as a leading practitioner in the area of Labour and Employment.

Commenting on the awards, Winston Zee, Baker & McKenzie’s Asia Pacific Regional Chairman, said, "These accolades recognize our commitment to foster an inclusive, merit-based working environment where all of our lawyers can thrive and build successful careers. I am proud of the leading role that Baker & McKenzie has played now for 50 years in this region, in building a more diverse, equitable and high-quality legal profession across Asia Pacific. I congratulate Jennifer on her personal achievement at these awards."

Baker & McKenzie topped the Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Awards shortlist this year. The Firm was also nominated for “Most Innovative Law Firm”, “Best Firm for Pro Bono Work”, "Best International Firm China Practice” and for the country awards in Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. Eight lawyers from across the Firm's 14 Asia Pacific offices were also nominated as leading practitioners in their fields: Kherk Ying Chew (IP Litigation), Anne Hung (Energy and Natural Resources), Angela Lee (Real Estate), Seraphim Mar (Labour and Employment), Maria Smith (Patent and Trademark Prosecution), Poh Lee Tan (M&A / Private Equity), Adeline Wong (Tax), and Ai Ai Wong (M&A / Private Equity).
