ALB honours leading women lawyers in Asia who have continuously made their mark in the market despite the disruptions by the Covid-19 pandemic. We are pleased to launch our Asia's Top 15 Female Lawyers, which will be announced in the ALB magazine's October 2021 issue.

This list highlights the achievements of top 15 female lawyers across Asia who have consistently delivered high-quality work and set high standards in their respective legal space, while earning accolades from their colleagues, superiors and clients.

We are now accepting submissions for ALB Asia’s Top 15 Female Lawyers until Friday, 16 July 2021.

Please note that submission does not guarantee a place on the list, and lawyers need to be admitted to practice law in an Asian jurisdiction and permanently based in Asia. Past and existing achievements as well as profile of deals/cases handled, clients’ recommendations, and any significant accolades and awards received will be taken into consideration when making the assessment.

We are celebrating Asia's Top 15 Female Lawyers in the October 2021 issue of the ALB magazine.

We look forward to receiving your nominations soon!
