KWM wins International Arbitration Law Firm of the Year at ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2021

King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) was named “International Arbitration Law Firm of the Year” at the Asian Legal Business (ALB) Hong Kong Law Awards 2021. The awards drew on the editorial team’s research to recognise the outstanding performance of private practitioners and in-house teams in Hong Kong and around the region.

Paul Starr, Co-Head of KWM’s International Arbitration team and Head of Dispute Resolution in Hong Kong said, “We are deeply honoured to have received this prestigious recognition. Competition from other law firms becomes more ferocious every year, so this accolade is particularly inspiring. International Arbitration is a key focus for our firm. The award further cements King & Wood Mallesons’ position as a leading firm in International Arbitration. We pride ourselves in providing clients with a seamless service via our cross-office teams. This award is therefore not only a tribute to the work of our amazing local team, but to all of our worldwide international arbitration lawyers who continue to push boundaries in helping our clients to strategise cross-border disputes as they continue to execute their business strategy.”

KWM Hong Kong has grown to become the largest Hong Kong international law firm in ALB’s Asia Top 50 list for two consecutive years. As one of the largest Dispute Resolution and Litigation teams in Hong Kong, we bring together a dedicated team to help clients achieve optimal negotiated, mediated or litigated/arbitrated outcomes across all forms of dispute resolution.
