Hong Kong partner Effie Vasilopoulos was recognized as one of the 2020 IFLR1000 Asia Best Lawyers. The list comprises an “elite cohort of 120 leading transactional lawyers” and recognizes the “top individual practitioners who have received the highest and most consistent praise from their peers and clients.” The honorees were selected based on analysis of deal data and more than 2,000 submissions.
Separately, for the second consecutive year, IFLR1000 named Effie to the Women Leaders supplement. The annual guide recognizes 300 women lawyers who are “at the top of their professions in their locales, who have impressive track records and are consistently recommended by clients and peers for the quality of their advice and service.”
