Southeast Asia Awards 20/21

The Legal 500 are extremely honoured to recognise and celebrate the leading legal talent at the inaugural The Legal 500 Southeast Asia Awards. This annual event will be positioned as the most prestigious and respected awards ceremony in the calendar for Southeast Asia’s legal practitioners.

The Legal 500 will recognise teams or individuals that have particularly impressed and exceeded expectations over the past 24 months. This has been formed by editorial gathered over the course of the last two years through the annual Legal 500 Asia Pacific submission process, in addition to independent research carried out by our team of private practice and GC Powerlist researchers.

With years of experience in researching the Southeast Asian legal market, both recognising the leading private practice firms and most influential in-house lawyers, this in-depth research process will identify a shortlist of leading talent who have demonstrated excellence in their legal services.

The current shortlist, produced following our 2020 guide, will be expanded to include standout performers from the last 12 months and will be updated following launch of the 2021 Asia Pacific guide.
