As a leader of innovation in the global legal sector, the Asia Pacific region is home to some of the world’s leading law firms. The Legal Awards return each year to recognise the very best this competitive industry has to offer. The region represents the world’s fastest growing legal market, and with a desire for innovative solutions to this competitive sector, the Legal Awards will showcase the very best talent that this sector can offer.
As an independent awarding body, business size or reach are not deciding factors for our nominations. Rather, we focus on the quality and dedication of work and services, feedback from existing and current clients and an endeavour to stay ahead in one of the world’s most ambitious business sectors.
Our dedicated approach will ensure each victor of our prestigious awards can be assured that their accolade is truly deserved. We employ a devoted submission and researching process to build case-files for each shortlisted party in the Legal Awards, ready for our expert panel of judges to assess and reward those worthy parties.
Participating in the APAC Insider Legal Awards is a fantastic way to inform customers and investors that your business’s excellence in client service is attracting the attention of those who seek to acknowledge the achievements of the leading Asia Pacific law firms.

The team work hard in identifying great businesses, driving many of the nominations themselves. The team encourage external nominations from magazine subscribers, web visitors, social media following, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either their own business or third-party companies whom they hold in high regard.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination, all firms and individuals are obviously free to accept or decline if they so wish. Those who formally accept are given the opportunity to submit additional supporting information. There is no obligation to complete and supply such material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as do our research team.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or by the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment based on various criteria such as business performance, longevity, diversification, growth (either sustained or rapid), significant innovations, feedback from stakeholders etc.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the APAC Insider website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
We offer a range of promotional packages and items to APAC Insider award winners, these vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, trophies, content in our magazine and content on our website.
We encourage winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure. Announcements via company websites, blogs, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement.
