International law firm Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) is delighted to announce that Partner Madeline Leong has won the ‘Best in Shipping’ award at the highly prestigious Euromoney Asia Women in Business Law Awards 2017, held this year at the JW Marriott, Hong Kong on 9 November 2017.
Now in their seventh year, the awards brings together the best female lawyers from across the continent to celebrate the achievements of women in the legal profession, both in-house and in private practice. This year’s awards also supported the Women’s Foundation, where all proceeds raised will contribute towards improving the lives of women and girls in Hong Kong.
Madeline commented: “This award actually recognises the hard work of everyone in the Hong Kong office, of which 70% are women. I am particularly thankful for those dedicated women who prop up the office tirelessly – a large number of whom are mothers and daughters, juggling onerous responsibilities on top of their jobs in an admirable way. Thank you for all your support.”
