Sydney Town Hall (pictured) was the impressive venue for last night’s ALB Australasian Law Awards 2013.
The event is now in its 10th year and is one of the key legal awards events in the Asia Pacific calendar.
Some of the winners:
- Corrs Chambers Westgarth won Innovative Use of Technology
- Herbert Smith Freehills won Corporate Citizen Firm of The Year and Australian Deal Team Of The Year (M&A), while Gavin Bell was named Managing Partner of the Year
- King & Wood Mallesons picked up the award for CSR Firm of The Year, and was also crowned overall Law Firm of The Year
- Allen & Overy was named International Firm of The Year
The ALB Australasian Law Awards is part of an Asia-Pacific-wide series of awards which includes the ALB China Law Awards (Beijing), ALB Hong Kong Law Awards (Hong Kong), ALB Japan Law Awards (Tokyo), ALB SE Asia Law Awards (Singapore), and the ALB Middle East Law Awards (Dubai).
The awards are companions to four regional legal publications – Asian Legal Business, Australasian Legal Business, China Legal Business, and Middle East Legal Business – all part of the Thomson Reuters group.
I followed the event on Twitter under the #ALBlawawards hashtag, and I have to say, I have never seen a bunch of lawyers seemingly have so much fun at an awards event.
