Bird & Bird wins TMT Firm of the Year for China


Bird & Bird’s China Communications, Media and Technology (CMT) Group has won Asian Counsel's Firm of the Year 2008 for TMT in China.

The award is based on a survey by Pacific Business Press, the publishers of Asian Counsel magazine. "Representing Corporate Asia" is one of the largest surveys of in-house counsel in Asia and the Middle East. Amongst other things, the survey asked the 300-strong panel of respondents to identify which law firms were their preferred external counsel.

Marcus Vass, Partner and Head of Bird & Bird’s Asia CMT Group, said; “We are delighted to be recognised by this award, especially since it was based on the votes and testimonials of our clients and industry counsel in Asia.”

Bird & Bird has one of the largest dedicated CMT groups in Greater China. It is consistently rated a leader in the field by the major legal directories and is rated in the top tier for TMT work in China by The Asia-Pacific Legal 500 2007/8. In the most recent PLC Which Lawyer? Yearbook, published in 2008, the CMT practice of Bird & Bird was "highly recommended" for Telecommunications in China, and the sole firm ranked as "highly recommended" for IT and E-commerce in Hong Kong.
