On 12 September 2013, Deacons was awarded "Hong Kong Firm of the Year" at the 7th China Law & Practice Awards ceremony held in Beijing.
China Law & Practice (CLP), a member of the Euromoney Institutional Investors' Legal Media Group, annually reveals the top deals and top law firms in China in key practice areas at the China Law & Practice Awards. The winners are judged on their professional accomplishments as well as advocacy and influence within their fields over the last 12 months.
This is the third award of a similar nature our firm has won this year following the winning of the "Hong Kong National Law Firm of the Year", Chambers China Award in February and "Hong Kong Law Firm of the Year", Asian Legal Business China Awards in March. It is unprecedented to receive such prestigious awards of the same kind from three different major legal media groups in a year.
