HFW wins China Insurance, International Trade and Shipping Awards

6 March 2018

HFW has won three awards at the China Business Law Awards 2017-18.

The firm was recognised for its leading practices in Insurance & Reinsurance, International Trade and Shipping.

The awards, which are run by business and legal magazine China Business Law Journal, are based on nominations from China-focused corporate counsel and legal professionals around the world. The judges also considered each firm’s landmark deals, cases and other notable achievements over the past year, and surveyed clients to receive feedback on their satisfaction with each firm’s services.
