Back

ap_top_tier_firms_2017

DFDL Legal & Tax has once again received numerous accolades in the official Legal 500 Asia Pacific 2017 rankings announced on 9 November 2016. William D. Greenlee, Jr., David Doran and Kristy Newby join Jim Finch as ‘leading lawyers’ in the rankings, with a further 19 DFDL legal advisers designated as ‘recommended’ across a range of jurisdictions and practice areas, many for the first time.

The recognition of expertise of so many DFDL team members certainly contributed to the top-tier status achieved by the DFDL Myanmar and DFDL Lao PDR offices, as well as the ‘recommended’ status for DFDL Thailand and DFDL Vietnam, across a broad range of practice areas.

The awards assess the leading law firms and lawyers in the region based on their breadth and diversity of experience, as well as consistency, innovation and the significance of projects worked on. The full results are detailed below:
