Sponsored by Hong Kong's biggest companies, who obviously see the need for a good lawyer or two, the Asian Legal Business Awards (aka the Oscars for lawyers) will be presented on September 24 at the Conrad Hotel. Sponsors say that no one can 'purchase' these awards; winners are based entirely on peer and client recommendations. More than 30 awards will be given, but one of the most coveted is Hong Kong Law Firm of the Year.


Nominees are Baker & McKenzie, Deacons, Johnson Stokes & Master, and Woo Kwan Lee & Lo. CitySeen suggests that next year, new categories such as Best Actor/Actress in a Leading Role, Best High Court Drama and Best Plagiarised Paper should be included.
