Double win at the 2017 China Law & Practice Awards


Allen & Overy wins Insurance Firm of the Year and Projects & Energy Deal of the Year at China’s most prestigious legal awards. 

Allen & Overy China shone again at the China Law & Practice awards held on Thursday 14 September in Beijing, taking home the Insurance Firm of the Year (International) and Projects & Energy Deal of the Year awards. 

The international legal practice received the Insurance Firm of the Year award for expertise in advising on various significant and high-profile cross-border transactions, which have been led by the China Corporate team. The team advises financial institution and insurance clients on strategic matters across the board within and outside of China, from M&A or joint ventures to financings, regulatory, antitrust and intellectual property matters.  

The accolade for Projects & Energy Deal of the Year recognised the team’s work as the sponsor’s counsel on the China Three Gorges’ USD1.7B Karot project in Pakistan. This hydropower project is one of the largest foreign investment and infrastructure projects in Pakistan, appearing in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Priority Projects List in connection with the Belt & Road Initiative by the PRC government. 

Ji Zou, corporate partner based in Shanghai, remarked: “It was a pleasure to collect these awards on behalf of Allen & Overy’s China Practice. These are fantastic wins, not just for our teams in China but Allen & Overy as a whole, recognising our talented people and further reinforcing our strong reputation in the market.”
