Gowling WLG was awarded the sought-after 'Law Firm of the Year, Singapore' accolade at this year's Citywealth IFC Awards.
The firm's Singapore-based private capital team works across south east and east Asia, looking after the interests of many businesses and high net worth individuals.
The awards are judged by an international panel of highly respected practitioners from all sectors with experience of working with advisors in all the jurisdictions covered. The winners are those who have excelled in achievement, innovation, expertise and service.
Singapore partner Zac Lucas said: "The firm has been shortlisted in this category in previous years, so this win is a reflection of the team's ever-growing and market-leading expertise in this area. This is a fantastic achievement, one year on from the firm's combination."
This year, there was a strong contingent of law firms competing for the highly regarded awards. Other shortlisted firms in Singapore included Baker & McKenzie Wong, Leow, Colin Ng & Partners, Rajah and Tann and Withers.
Now in their sixth year, the Citywealth International Financial Centre Awards were established to highlight the excellence of the advisers and managers in the private wealth sector in the major international financial centres.
Gowling WLG's private capital work in Asia is led by Zac Lucas and his team.
On the night, the award was accepted by corporate partner Andy Stylianou from former England Rugby player Austin Healey.
