Women in Business Law Awards Asia-Pacific 2022: shortlist revealed
The Women in Business Law Awards is excited to present its shortlist for the 2022 APAC Awards.
The Women in Business Law Awards has released the full list of finalists for its 2022 APAC awards.
The awards bring together to recognize the leading women lawyers throughout the region and celebrate the law firms that have impressive initiatives to promote diversity and women in the legal industry.
Winners will be announced on September 15 2022.
A preview of the practice area and Rising Star finalists can be found below and the full list of the finalists for all is available on the awards website. The Women in Business Law Awards research team carefully selected each finalist after a thorough research period which included an analysis of direct submissions, client feedback, and much deliberation
Individual practitioners and Rising Stars are judged not only on the complexity of the work the nominees completed in 2021, but also on their advocacy, influence, and thought leadership in relation to the promotion of women in the practice of law and within their practice area specialisms
Law firm initiatives are recognised across various categories, including for gender diversity and work-life balance.
All of the work accepted for shortlisting closed during the research period, which was from January 1 to December 31 2021. The awards do not recognise cases, deals, or transactions completed outside of the research period.
