Six Australian law firms were among the winners of the Asia Tax Awards held recently in Singapore.

The awards, hosted by the International Tax Review, are presented in 11 categories across the entire Asian region, as well in four categories across 13 geographical jurisdictions.

PricewaterhouseCoopers beat out last year's winner, Deloitte, to take out the night's most coveted award - Asia Tax Firm of the Year.

Meanwhile, Mallesons Stephen Jaques was named Asia Tax Controversy Firm of the Year, DLA Phillips Fox won Asia Capital Markets Tax Team of the Year, and Baker & Mackenzie took out Asia Restructuring Tax Team of the Year.

Within the Australian jurisdiction, Greenwoods & Freehills - Taxand won Tax Firm of the Year, while Clayton Utz was named Tax Controversy Firm of the Year. Blake Dawson took out the Indirect Tax category and Mallesons Stephen Jaques gained another mention for Case of the Year, thanks to their work on BHP Billiton Finance Limited v Commissioner of Taxation [2009] FCA 276.

Bakers also performed strongly across other jurisdictions, winning for Indirect Tax in China, Tax Controversy in Hong Kong, Indonesia and Japan, and Indirect Tax in Malaysia - under the name Wong & Partners (Baker & McKenzie). The firm was also shortlisted for the top prize of Asia Tax Firm of the Year.
