Trowers & Hamlins wins Excellence in International Legal Services Award 2015

Trowers & Hamlins wins Excellence in International Legal Services Award 2015

Trowers & Hamlins is delighted to announce that it has won the "Excellence in International Legal Services" award at the 2015 Law Society Excellence Awards.

The winners of the Law Society Excellence Awards were selected by a panel of senior industry experts.  The "Excellence in International Legal Services" category recognises law firms with an innovative approach to the delivery of legal services in today's international marketplace. 

Trowers & Hamlins' award submission focused on the steps the firm took to secure a licence in Malaysia.  Earlier this year Trowers & Hamlins became the first foreign law firm to be granted a licence – the culmination of a long process which saw the firm blaze a trail in the country's newly liberalised legal market.  The licence allows the firm to operate independently in Malaysia and advise on international legal issues, subject to certain restrictions. 

The Law Society Excellence Awards were held on 22 October 2015 at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane in London.
