MALLESONS STEPHEN Jaques has won the Construction Law Firm of the Year at the 2006 ALB Hong Kong Law Awards for the third time.

Robert Milliner, Mallesons’ chief executive partner, said the firm was “proud to receive consistent independent recognition as being a leading construction practice in Hong Kong”.

“This award clearly acknowledges our Asian capabilities and standing in the market,” he said.

The annual Hong Kong awards ceremony “recognises and promotes outstanding professional achievement and some of the best legal work of the year throughout Hong Kong”.

The award is in recognition of the performance of Mallesons’ projects, construction and environment team, which over the previous two decades has undertaken some of the region’s largest projects. These include an involvement in the Bangkok Metro, Thailand; Central Harbour Reclamation, Hong Kong; Hong Kong International Airport; Hong Kong Science Park; Incheon International Airport Rail Link, Korea; Taiwan High Speed Railway; North Luzon Expressway, Philippines; World Finance Centre, Shanghai; new casinos and resorts in Macau and numerous power, gas, water and renewable energy projects.

Partner from the property, construction and environment team, Paul Starr, said the division was grateful for the support it had received from its clients.

“It is thanks to their close collaboration and the dedication and talent of our people that we are able to work on such significant construction projects,” he said.

Adding to the tribute, Mallesons’ projects, construction and environment partners in Hong Kong are featured in the latest recommendations of PLC Which lawyer?. These partners are evaluated on the number of recommendations each firm or lawyer receives from in-house counsel and private practitioners. The team’s recommended partners include David Bateson in construction (Hong Kong and China) and dispute resolution; Starr for construction and dispute resolution (Hong Kong and China) and Christopher Tung for environment (Hong Kong and China).

Other Mallesons’ partners working in different divisions were also recommended in the Hong Kong section, such as Steven Christopher (banking), Larry Kwok (finance, equity capital markets), Richard Mazzochi (banking), Adrienne Showering (debt capital markets), Stuart Valentine (corporate/M&A) and Dieter Yih (finance: equity capital markets).
