Conyers has once again won the Best Offshore Law Firm at the China Business Law Awards 2020. We have received this prestigious award for eight years consecutively.
“We are extremely proud to receive this firm award again”, said Christopher Bickley, Partner and Head of the Hong Kong office. “It does not only affirm our leading position in Greater China and across Asia, it is also a testament to the outstanding performance of our lawyers of different practices and a genuine reflection of our clients’ trust over the years.”
Since setting foot in Hong Kong 35 years ago, Conyers has become one of the most respected offshore law firms in the region. The firm continues to lead the way in Asia providing offshore legal advice to many of the region’s largest corporates and financial institutions.
Apart from the Best Offshore Law Firm award, we have also won in three other categories, namely, Family Wealth Management, Insurance & Reinsurance, and Restructuring & Insolvency.
