Sidley has taken home a pair of awards at the 2021 China Business Law Journal Awards. The firm has been named “Firm of the Year” in the Capital Markets (Overseas) and Healthcare, Pharma & Life Sciences categories. This is the second year in a row that China Business Law Journal recognized Sidley in the Capital Markets (Overseas) category and the third consecutive year for the firm’s Healthcare, Pharma & Life Sciences practice. The annual awards are a celebration of the most innovative and sophisticated legal work undertaken in China in the past year. The results are based on hundreds of nominations, recommendations, and endorsements received from China-focused in-house counsels and legal professionals around the world.
Sidley was among the first U.S. law firms to recognize the importance of having a presence in China and currently has offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. The strategic establishment of Sidley’s offices in the key commercial, financial, and governmental centers of China has enabled the firm to represent multinational and domestic corporations, as well as government authorities, banks, and financial institutions.
