The Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2020 rankings were recently released and once again Deacons has achieved a strong set of results across the board.
Overall we are ranked in 18 practice areas in the Hong Kong and China chapters. We are delighted to be recognised for the first time in ‘Labour and Employment: Foreign Firms’ and ‘Corporate and M&A: Foreign Firms ‘in the China chapter, alongside our Intellectual Property practice which continues to receive recognition.
Our Investment Funds and Intellectual Property practices remain top tier practices, while eleven lawyers from various practice groups are listed in the elite ‘Leading Individuals’ list, an increase from nine lawyers last year. The ‘Leading Individuals’ list is Legal 500’s guide to outstanding lawyers in the Asia Pacific region.
Three of our lawyers have been named ‘Next Generation Partners’, recognising those individuals that make a material difference to a practice, and three of our Associates are listed in the ‘Rising Stars’ category. In total, 47 Deacons lawyers are recommended in the Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2020 guide.
The Legal 500 is a leading independent publication which ranks the region’s best firms and lawyers, based on extensive research compiled from interviews, peer reviews and client feedback.
Congratulations to all of our ranked practices and lawyers. This impressive set of results reflects client opinion and reinforces our position as a leading law firm with the region.
