Two Appleby Hong Kong Partners recognized in ALB's Offshore Client Choice 2017
Appleby's Hong Kong office has been recognized in the latest Offshore Client Choice list 2017. Judy Lee and Fiona Chan, partners on the corporate team, have been selected as outstanding lawyers in the Offshore Client List 2017 published by Asian Legal Business (ALB) in May 2017.
The recognition marked the culmination of client survey conducted by ALB involving hundreds of questionnaires with leading in-house counsel, lawyers in the onshore space and referees from financial institutes.
Judy Lee, Hong Kong Head of Corporate, was singled out as one of the notable mentions for her strong track record for corporate and investment funds laws. A client says “Judy has been exceptionally brilliant. I have nothing but good things to say about her. In the region her team provides coverage that you don’t get from other firms.”
The survey highlights the breadth of experience of Fiona in corporate and finance work, and her view on the current trends in PRC outbound investments. She was particularly praised for her responsiveness. “I have met many offshore lawyers in my field of work, and her response time is second to none” says one of her clients. The Magic-Circle trained lawyer was equally lauded as “responsive” by Legal 500.
Commenting on the win, Judy Lee said “It reflects our strength as a pre-eminent offshore firm in Asia, our high standard of client service and the multi jurisdictions we cover. We strive to consistently be top tier in funds, corporate finance, banking & finance as well as dispute resolution.”
