2 APAC / Legal Awards 2020 Editor’s Note , Welcome to the APAC Legal Awards 2020 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.
