Mallesons named firm of year

Mallesons named firm of year

Mallesons Stephen Jaques has been named Australian Law Firm of the Year at the 2012 Chambers Asia Pacific Awards, announced on 28 February in New Delhi._x000D_

Mallesons Stephen Jaques has been named Australian Law Firm of the Year at the 2012 Chambers Asia Pacific Awards, announced on 28 February in New Delhi.

Mallesons defeated its top-tier rivals on the eve of its official merger with Chinese law firm King & Wood, which was named the Chambers Chinese Law Firm of the Year for 2012.

The award recognises domestic pre-eminence and outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service over the past 12 months.

The win was described by Mallesons’ managing partner Australia, Tony O’Malley, as reflective of the innovation and service Mallesons brings to the Australian market.

“In 2011, we offered our clients exceptional domestic and cross-border transaction skills and deep local and regional expertise,” he said. “In 2012, more than ever before, our clients will benefit from the innovative business solutions and insight into the region’s key markets that the new regional legal powerhouse – King & Wood Mallesons – will offer.”

O’Malley said the award also reflects the “hard work and restlessness of our people to exceed client expectations”.

Other finalists in the Chambers Australian Law Firm of the Year category were Allens Arthur Robinson, Blake Dawson, Clayton Utz, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Freehills and Minter Ellison.

Earlier this week, Mallesons earned the Regional Firm of the Year, Firm of the Year (Australia) and Restructuring Deal of the Year gongs at the IFLR1000 Awards.
