Chapman Tripp took home the award for New Zealand Law Firm of the Year at Monday’s Chambers Asia Pacific Awards, held in Hong Kong.
It’s the second time that Chapman Tripp has won the award in recent history; it was also the first New Zealand law firm to be awarded Firm of the Year in 2011.
In announcing the award, Chambers Asia Pacific wrote:
"This long-established firm, already renowned for its particularly durable client relationships and consistent excellence across the board in key practice areas, has more than maintained its reputation this year. In the corporate sphere, it was at the forefront of the government's reforms of the energy market, acting for Mighty River Power during its landmark flotation. The firm also added to its laurels in the financial space, further enhancing its standing as the go-to outfit for complex debt capital markets and other high-profile financing issues."
The Chambers Asia Pacific Awards honour the work of national and international law firms across the Asia Pacific region on the basis of research for the upcoming edition of Chambers Asia Pacific. They reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.
