(MEDIA RELEASE) Rajah & Tann Singapore bags Chambers’ National Law Firm of the Year Award
Singapore, 5 May 2015 – Rajah & Tann Singapore has been recognised as Singapore’s National Law Firm of the Year at the fifth Chambers Asia-Pacific Awards for Excellence, a prestigious event that honours the leading law firms in the Asia-Pacific region.
Rajah & Tann Singapore, which together with its network of firms known as Rajah & Tann Asia forms the largest legal services provider in Southeast Asia, received the award at a gala dinner and awards ceremony in Hong Kong yesterday evening (4 May). Rajah & Tann was up against five other Singapore law firms and is winning the accolade for the second time since it was launched in 2010.
Rajah & Tann Singapore’s Managing Partner Lee Eng Beng, SC said: “We are deeply honoured to be recognised as the top Singapore law firm by Chambers whose awards are widely respected in the legal industry.
“This award is an endorsement by an expert and independent research house of our continued efforts to provide quality and range of services to our clients in Singapore and in multiple jurisdictions across Southeast Asia.
“On behalf of all my colleagues in Singapore and the region, I would like to thank our clients and business partners for their support over the years, without which we would not have come this far in our professional achievements.”
The Chambers’ top national law firm awards recognise law firms’ pre-eminence in key practice areas and reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service. The award is given to the leading national and international law firm in each country surveyed, based on research for the 2015 edition of Chambers’ Asia-Pacific.
Rajah & Tann Singapore last clinched the Singapore National Law Firm of the Year award by Chambers in 2013 and is only one of two law firms in the Republic to have won it twice.
The award comes on the back of Rajah & Tann Singapore’s win at the Who’s Who Legal Awards 2015 for Singapore’s Law Firm of the Year last month. Who's Who Legal is published by Law Business Research Limited, an independent London-based publishing group, which provides research, analysis and reports on the international legal services marketplace.
