Welcome to the Legal Awards 2023 APAC Insider’s longstanding and extremely popular annual legal awards programme returns! The APAC Legal Awards 2023 will honour top legal talent in the Asia Pacific region, bringing recognition to those whose knowledge, skill and innovation distinguishes them from the competition. The Asia Pacific region is quickly becoming a region of high growth for law firms, due to abundant investment and funding potential, as well as high activity in sectors for which legal services are imperative. Initiatives such as ASEAN’s* promotion of sustainable infrastructure are driving development and increasing the need for legal services relating to infrastructure deals or projects in Asia. In addition to these factors, cross-border trade in Asia Pacific is expected to see improvement and growth throughout 2023. The Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership coming into effect in 2022 has encouraged cross-border trade in Asia Pacific. Likewise, the emergence of modern regional payment networks such as India’s Unified Payments Interface, is increasing security and lowering the cost of cross-border transactions.
