BC&C wins again at HK Law Awards

Hong Kong, 11 September 2019: Colin Cohen has hailed “a marvellous team effort” after Boase Cohen & Collins was named Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm of the Year for the second year running at the Hong Kong Law Awards.

Having first collected the award in 2018, BC&C once again prevailed amid intense competition from seven other finalists to land the trophy. The firm was also shortlisted in the Criminal, Matrimonial and Corporate Citizenship categories.

“This award is a reflection of the commitment to excellence that we have in serving our clients and pursuing justice on their behalf,” said Colin, BC&C’s Senior Partner. “It is also testament to the skill, dedication and perseverance of everyone at our firm, including our talented lawyers and our resourceful administrative staff who provide us with such fantastic support. My thanks go to everyone for a marvellous team effort, this award is richly deserved.”

BC&C’s winning submission for Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm of the Year highlighted three case studies from among the 480 civil litigation cases handled by the firm in 2018-19. The firm’s lawyers were also highly visible during the year in Hong Kong and overseas, giving presentations and lectures, appearing at conferences, continuing to be active members of various legal bodies, and appearing in print and broadcast media.

Five members of the firm’s legal team – Partners Usha Casewell and Lisa Wong, Associates Allison Lee and Stephanie Lai, and Trainee Solicitor Claire Chow – stepped on stage to receive the trophy in front of a packed audience at the prize-giving Gala Dinner at the JW Marriott hotel in Admiralty.

The Macallan ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2019 were presented by Asian Legal Business magazine. The Gala Dinner featured legal industry heavyweights gathering to pay tribute to the outstanding performance of private practitioners and in-house teams from Hong Kong and the region.
