Leading offshore law firm Appleby is delighted to announce that Hong Kong based Asia Group Head and Corporate Partner, Judy Lee, has been recognised for the third year in a row in the fourth edition of IFLR1000 Women Leaders list 2021. Judy continues to be the only offshore lawyer in the Asia-Pacific region to be included.

The Women Leaders list recognises the leading female transactional lawyers in the world. These lawyers have impressive track records and are consistently recommended by clients and peers for the quality of their advice and service.

Each year, IFLR1000 undertakes research evaluating lawyers and firms on the basis of transactional experience and market feedback. During the research process, the teams in Hong Kong, London and New York evaluate thousands of submissions and survey data of thousands of client referees and peers, and conduct hundreds of interviews before nominating individuals for Women Leaders.

Commenting on the recognition, Judy said “I am proud to have been recognised in this list for the third year in a row. To be the only offshore lawyer in the Asia-Pacific region included amongst these female global leaders is particularly gratifying. Across Appleby’s global network women account for more than half of the business as a whole and this figure is well reflected at our senior levels.”
