China Law & Practice in association with The American Lawyer, The Asian Lawyer and Legal Week, is inviting nominations for the 13th annual China Law & Practice Awards, where the top lawyers, law firms, and in-house teams in China will gather to celebrate their most stellar achievements of the year.

Complex domestic and cross-border acquisitions and disputes and the increasing need for innovative regulatory solutions with both local and global applicability all make China one of the most vibrant, demanding, and competitive legal environments in the world.

As China’s most renowned ceremony for the legal elite, the China Law & Practice Awards honor the best work in and out of the nation. Across our coverage of practice areas and disciplines we intend to identify the biggest and most important commercial legal matters that involved lawyers and parties in China.
