ALB Asia’s Top 15 TMT Lawyers 2021

We are now accepting submissions for the 2021 ALB Asia’s Top 15 TMT Lawyers. In the recent years, the rapid development of Technology, Media and Telecom (TMT) industries transformed the way we do business, thus fast - tracking Asia’s economic growth.

ALB Asia’s Top 15 TMT Lawyers provides a ranking of the most innovative and outstanding TMT lawyers in the region. One firm can nominate at most TWO lawyers who had significant achievements in the practice area in the last 12 months. The candidates can be of any nationality but need to be based in Asia. The most noteworthy and innovative TMT work in career life, clients’ recommendations, and the use of technology to minimise the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic will be taken into consideration when making an assessment.
