Hong Kong partner Michelle Chan has been named Best in TMT at this year's Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Awards. This acknowledgement is a clear reflection of Michelle's strong reputation in the technology, communications and media sectors and the exceptional quality of her work.
The prestigious awards celebrate the advancement of women in the legal profession and recognise the leading female practitioners across Asia-Pacific. The winners (full list available here) were named at a ceremony at Hong Kong's JW Marriott on 13 November. In addition to Michelle's award, Shanghai partner Christine Yiu was shortlisted in the "Best for IP Litigation" category.
Since Michelle joined our Hong Kong team in May this year, the practice has gone from strength to strength, with major new clients including beIN Sports, Mad Head, Prudential, Telstra and Noble Group, all coming on board.
