AWARDS

We are delighted to announce that Haldanes has been recognized by peers and industry as "Criminal Law Firm of the Year" for the 13th year in succession.  Our reputation as the premier criminal law firm in Hong Kong has been built over four decades with a strong pedigree of local and international legal practitioners.  The commitment, credibility and client focus of our teams has been recognized once again and we would like to thank our staff, clients and industry partners for their loyalty and support. We look forward to many more years of faithful service and dedication.

Haldanes has cemented its reputation as the leading firm for criminal defence in Hong Kong. John Kang of Asian Legal Business looks into the local firm’s rise to the top and finds out how it stays it there. Earlier this month at The Macallan ALB Hong Kong Law Awards 2017, Haldanes beat the likes of Deacons – Hong Kong’s largest domestic firm – and international disputes firm Kobre & Kim to win the Criminal Law Firm of the Year award. But its victory was no shock: Haldanes has won the award for 18 straight years. The local firm’s dominance in this category is even less surprising for barristers like Peter Duncan SC and Gary Plowman SC, who work closely with Haldanes. “The firm has a universal and well-deserved reputation for its fearless protection of its clients’ interests whilst always remaining true to the rules of the judicial process and the public interest in the integrity of the profession,” says Duncan. Plowman adds, “I have worked with Haldanes many times over the years, and I have no difficulty at all understanding why they are the consistent winners of this prestigious award. They are a class act.” Haldanes has the biggest criminal law practice in the city: it has eight qualified lawyers who do nothing but criminal defence work. This focus is different from the majority of firms whose criminal defence work is just a small part – if at all – of their practice. Given these factors, it certainly isn’t difficult to understand why Haldanes is the undisputed leader in this area…… To read the full article please visit: http://www.legalbusinessonline.com/news/alb-insights-how-haldanes-became-go-firm-criminal-defence-hong-kong/75135
