China Business Law Journal is conducting extensive research for the China Business Law Awards, which will be granted to the best Chinese and international law firms for the China market and the results will be announced in March 2020.

As part of this process, we are requesting nominations from in-house counsel, corporate executives and legal professionals around the world. Anyone with knowledge or experience of China-related legal services provided by Chinese or international law firms during 2019 is welcome to make nominations.*

Please click here to make your nomination.

The nomination form that follows invites you to nominate three Chinese law firms and three international law firms in rank order in a number of categories. Please feel free to make nominations in any/all categories with which you are familiar. As you do so, you are encouraged to think about big firms and small firms, old firms and new firms, specialist firms and general practice firms. Please base your nominations on firms’ performances during 2019.

The deadline for making nominations is 22 January (Wednesday). Thank you for your support. We look forward to receiving your nominations.

*If you work at a law firm, you are only permitted to nominate other law firms. We have invited law firms to make separate submissions in support of their own candidacy for China Business Law Journal’s awards. If you would like to make a submission for your own law firm, please email [email protected] for more information.

China Business Law Journal’s China Business Law Awards are presented annually and judged on a number of criteria, including nominations received from in-house counsel and other qualified observers, submissions provided by candidate law firms, reference checks with law firm clients and other research conducted by China Business Law Journal’s editorial team.
