Ogier shortlisted for three ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2021

Ogier has been shortlisted in three categories, including Offshore Law Firm of the Year, at this year's Asian Legal Business (ALB) Hong Kong Law Awards.

Partner and Head of ESG (Legal) Kate Hodson is a finalist for Woman Lawyer of the Year (Law Firm) and Contemporary Ruiding Development's debut bond offering, on which Ogier advised, has been shortlisted for Debt Market Deal of the Year.

The ALB Hong Kong Law Awards are the pre-eminent legal awards in Asia and honour the outstanding performance of private practitioners and in-house teams in the region. This latest recognition comes after two leading partners in Ogier's Hong Kong team - Nicholas Plowman, head of Investment Funds, and Anthony Oakes, head of Banking and Finance - were named on ALB's Offshore Client Choice List for 2021 - their sixth consecutive year to be recognised.

"It is a great pleasure to be shortlisted for Offshore Firm of the Year  and I'm delighted to see Kate Hodson shortlisted for Woman Lawyer of the Year - a recognition truly deserved," said Hong Kong Practice Partner Nicholas Plowman.

"It has been an extraordinary 12 months, which have presented challenges and opportunities to both legal firms and their clients. This recognition serves as a testament to the talent and hard work of our Hong Kong teams, which have continued to provide a seamless, best-in-class service to our clients in the region."

Winners of the ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2021 will be announced during a virtual ceremony on Friday 10 September.
