AWA Asia is listed as a Leading Firm by Legal 500

We are excited to announce AWA Asia has again been ranked as a leading firm by The Legal 500 in the 2022 edition for the Asia Pacific region.

In addition to the firm ranking, Ai-Leen LimAshley Zhao and Xiaofan Chen were all individually ranked as recommended lawyers for Intellectual Property: Foreign Firms in China.

The Legal 500 obtained the following testimonials as part of the research process:

“AWA Asia is unique because both the clients and I never feel like anything is lost in translation with respect to the client’s mindset – whether their approach is very Western and they want a concise and pragmatic recommendation, whether they want an alternative approach to litigation, or whether they want to explore all options available, even ones that have a lower chance of success.”

“I never have to go back and forth with additional questions or requests for estimated costs/chances of success – I get everything I need during the initial report, which saves time, money and energy.”

“AWA Asia has the best-quality work and service, and at the best price that I have found for China/Hong Kong matters.”

Published annually, The Legal 500 Asia Pacific provides commentary and insight into the legal marketplaces of 25 Asia Pacific jurisdictions. Researchers conduct extensive research into each jurisdiction, canvassing law firms and contacting more than 300,000 clients for feedback on the lawyers they instruct. The 2022 edition was launched on January 12, 2022.
