International law firm Watson Farley & Williams (“WFW”) is delighted to announce that Partner and Singapore Head Mei Lin Goh has won the “Maritime Law Award – Individual Lawyer of the Year” at the highly prestigious Lloyd’s List Asia Pacific Awards 2017, held this year at the Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore, on 26 October 2017.
The Lloyd’s List Awards series recognise the maritime industry’s successes, setting a benchmark for excellence while rewarding innovative ideas and concepts that have pushed the boundaries of what is possible. The judges noted that Mei “acts on some of the most multi-layered, complex and high value transactions in the market, as evidenced by her solid ranking across various Asian jurisdictions”.
This is the latest high profile recognition for Mei as one of Asia’s leading maritime lawyers, following being named “Best in shipping” at Euromoney’s Asia Women in Business Law Awards 2016 held last November. In addition, WFW was also named Maritime Law Firm of the Year (jointly with leading local Singaporean law firm Allen & Gledhill) at Asian Legal Business’ South East Asia Law Awards 2017 in May of this year.
