Asia Risk awards 2009: Derivatives law firm of the year



One could cite a number of major issues since mid-2008 in Asia that have required derivatives law expertise, from the collapse of Lehman Brothers and its aftermath, to disputes related to widespread structured product losses, to the restructuring of transactions due to numerous credit events. Equally important – if rather lower profile – has been the continued development of a range of documentation, including a new derivatives master agreement for China, published earlier this year.
