Luxury Law Firm of the Year at 2016 Luxury Law Awards
We have received the 2016 Luxury Law Firm of the Year Award at the Luxury Law Awards. The ceremony, which recognizes those who have made an exceptional contribution to the luxury goods industry, was held in London on 16 May. Baker & McKenzie won the accolade against six other competing firms, the largest shortlist in any category at the ceremony.
Organized in conjunction with the Luxury Law Summit, the Luxury Law Awards offer a unique opportunity for general counsel, in house legal teams and law firms to gain recognition for their specialist skills and expertise in the luxury sector.
Speaking after the ceremony, Marc Levey, Co-Chair of the Luxury and Fashion Industry Group at Baker & McKenzie said, "Our teams working in luxury and fashion offer a wealth of experience across all major areas of law. Our global reach is unmatched and allows us to keep an eye on relevant local legal and business developments. In winning this award, we have demonstrated that we are leading the field in the practice of luxury law in complex and challenging international luxury markets."
LokeKhoon Tan, Co-Chair of the Luxury and Fashion Industry Practice Group at Baker & McKenzie added, "The number of luxury industry consumers has trebled in the last twenty years and we continue to leverage our 40+ years of experience working with leading fashion and luxury companies around the world. Drawing on our cross-border experience in the luxury industries, we regularly hold Luxury and Fashion legal conferences around the world, particularly in New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore and Milan. Last year we created the first ever Global Luxury & Fashion Legal Guide, with advice on regulation, issues and trends affecting those in the industry, so it is exciting to be recognized with this accolade."
