HFW Wins China Business Law Awards For Aviation, Construction, Insurance And Shipping

Global, sector-focused law firm HFW has been named Law Firm of the Year in four categories at the China Business Law Awards 2020: Aviation, Construction and Infrastructure, Insurance and Reinsurance, and Shipping.

It is the fourth consecutive year that the firm has won the Aviation and Shipping awards, and the third year in a row that it has won the Insurance award.

The awards are based on nominations from China-focused corporate counsel, senior managers and legal professionals around the world.

Judges from China Business Law Journal considered HFW's deals, cases and other notable achievements over the past year, and sought client feedback on satisfaction with the firm's services.

Nicholas Poynder, Shanghai Office Head, HFW:

"We are proud to once again have the strength and breadth of our Greater China practice recognised by CBLJ, clients and peers. We have been in the market for a long time and pride ourselves on offering clients deep industry expertise across our core sectors."

HFW has been in China for more than 20 years and enhanced its offering in 2016 by becoming only the second international law firm to secure a local association under the Shanghai FTZ rules, with Chinese firm Wintell & Co.
