20 December 2021

Global, sector-focused law firm HFW has again been recognised as a leading firm in the release of Chambers Asia-Pacific 2022, which ranks top lawyers and law firms across Australia and Singapore.

HFW achieved 34 practice and lawyer rankings across its network of offices in the region. This includes Band 1 rankings for Shipping Litigation across the Asia-Pacific Region, Australia and Singapore, as well as a new category of “Highly Regarded” for Dispute Resolution: Arbitration in Singapore. HFW also moved up one band for Construction in Australia.

HFW’s strong sector focus is reflected in client testimonials in the directory, including across Construction, Shipping, Aviation and Insurance. Clients specifically highlight the firm’s commitment to client service, understanding their business, commerciality and “superior quality skills and expertise”. They value HFW’s “strong focus on the pragmatic commercial realities within which the business operates,” as well as the firm’s “practical approach and easy access to lawyers at all levels.”

The Chambers rankings are based on a combination of research and client feedback, with assessments made on technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence and commitment.

There are also a number of first-time and improved individual lawyer rankings across HFW’s core sectors, which also highlight expertise in Dispute Resolution: Arbitration and Employment:

  • Jo Delaney, Partner, Construction
  • Brendan Milne, Partner, Construction
