International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that it was named a winner in the category of “Banking & Finance” in the China Business Law Awards 2017-2018, published by the China Business Law Journal. The awards are based on nominations and comments received by the China Business Law Journal from China-focused corporate counsel, senior managers and legal professionals around the world, along with an evaluation of the winning firms’ landmark deals, cases and other notable achievements.

Dorsey’s Banking Industry Group consists of over 250 attorneys serving banks around the world, including several leading Chinese financial institutions. “We are deeply honored to be recognized for serving our Chinese clients, particularly the large Chinese banks and other Chinese financial institutions, as this is a major focus for Dorsey,” said Lanier Saperstein, a New York-based Partner who is co-head of the Firm’s U.S.–China Practice Group. “We are proud that so many prominent Chinese banks and other Chinese financial institutions look to Dorsey for counsel from our lawyers in both China and the U.S. As they do an increasing amount of business in the U.S., we are well positioned to serve them, as this award attests.”  

Peter Corne, head of the Firm’s Shanghai office, added, “Dorsey serves a wide range of industries in China, and to be recognized in the competitive category of Banking & Finance is very gratifying.”

Dorsey has received many accolades for its China practice, including a past China Business Law Award in the category of “Insurance & Reinsurance” and a China Business Law Journal Deal of the Year award.
