Clifford Chance's Asia Pacific Derivatives and Financial Regulatory team has been awarded Asia Pacific Law Firm of the Year for Transactions and Asia Pacific Law Firm of the Year for Regulatory from publication GlobalCapital at the GlobalCapital Global Derivatives Awards which were held in London yesterday. This is the first time a law firm has won both coveted awards in a single year.

Hong Kong partner Francis Edwards said, "In past years we have received either one or the other awards; this is the first time we've received both. It's a great recognition of the market leading transactional and regulatory advice we've been providing to our clients across the region. I'd like to congratulate my fellow team members for their hard work and commitment to supporting our clients in Asia Pacific."

Singapore partner Paul Landless offered, "This win represents the leading work our diverse team has delivered to clients across the APAC region through our strong collaboration internally and a firm grasp of both the latest regulatory developments and the increasing use of innovative technologies in the financial markets. We work closely together to ensure our advice is of the highest quality, commercial and client-centric and we share a commitment to remain always on top of the latest thinking amongst governments, policymakers and industry associations that affect the markets."

The awards honour the firms and innovations that have pushed the derivatives market forward over the last 12 months, with winners being selected by an editorial panel with market soundings. This year the awards were presented at GlobalCapital's gala dinner at the Banking Hall in London on Wednesday, September 25.
