Now in its 17th year, the annual ALB SE Asia Law Awards pays tribute to the outstanding performance of private practitioners and in-house teams that have significantly contributed to the evolving legal landscape of the region. The winners were decided after rigorous assessments by an independent panel of more than 25 senior and expert legal industry leaders from the legal academe, in-house teams, law firms, legal associations, and non-profit organisations in Southeast Asia. The 2021 awards ceremony was presented virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 endemic.
