ALB Law Award – Malaysia & South East Asia
Low & Partners Recognised at the ALB Law Awards
On 7 April 2017, Low & Partners (‘LP’) made a strong showing at the Asian Legal Business (‘ALB’) Malaysia Law Awards 2017 held at the InterContinental Hotel. The ALB Malaysia Law Awards is an annual event which aims to celebrate the excellent contributions of private practice and in-house counsel to the legal landscape of Malaysia.
The awards ceremony was graced by illustrious members of the bench, in-house individuals, academics, industry specialists and practitioners. It was a memorable event for the firm as it marked LP’s debut at this prestigious award.
The evening was especially significant as LP was named as finalists for a whopping 6 awards. In the face of it being an emergent firm, LP was up against reputable names such as Skrine, Shearn Delamore & Co and Wong & Partners. In the Firm category, LP was nominated in these categories: the Boutique Law Firm of the Year, Litigation Law Firm of the Year, and Matrimonial and Family Law Firm of the Year.
Leading lawyers, Dato’ Andy Low and Toh Lee Kim, were also finalists in the individual categories. Lee Kim was nominated for the Woman Lawyer of the Year award while Dato’ Andy Low clinched two nominations for the categories of Young Lawyer of the Year and Managing Partner of the Year.
Meanwhile, LP was also announced the finalists in the ALB South East Asia Law Awards 2017 in the following categories:
- Regional Managing Partner of the Year
- Young Lawyer of the Year (Under 40)
- Dispute Resolution Boutique Law Firm of the Year
- Matrimonial and Family Law Firm of the Year
- Regional Litigation Law Firm of the Year
It is indeed double joy for LP as the firm is not only recognised Malaysia but also in the South East Asian region.
On LP’s achievement at the ALB awards, Dato’ Low commented that: “Credit must go to all the members of LP as LP’s success in the ALB awards is a team effort. Our clients have also been really supportive and we are deeply grateful for their trust in us.”
