Women in Business Law Awards APAC 2021: shortlist revealed

The Women in Business Law Awards is excited to present its shortlist for the 2021 Asia-Pacific Awards.

The Women in Business Law Awards has released the full list of finalists for its 2021 Asia-Pacific awards.

The awards bring together Asia-Pacific’s legal community to recognise the leading women lawyers from across the region and to celebrate the law firms that have launched the most impactful initiatives to promote diversity and equality in the legal profession.

Winners will be announced on September 15 2021.

A preview of the practice area and Rising Star finalists can be found below, but the full list is only available on the awards website. The Women in Business Law Awards research team selected each finalist following a review of entries and much internal deliberation. The review process included an analysis of direct submissions, interviews with law firms and in-house teams, client feedback, and research into the baseline in each market.

Individual practitioners and Rising Stars are judged not only on the complexity of the work the nominees completed in 2020, but also on their advocacy, influence, and thought leadership to promote women in the practice of law and within 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 of January 1 to December 31 2020.The awards do not recognise cases, deals, or transactions completed outside this review period.
