International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP is pleased to announce that it has received a China Business Law Award in the category of “IT, Telecoms & E-Commerce,” an award given by the China Business Law Journal. This is the third year in a row that China Business Law Journal has recognized the Firm’s China Practice Group. The award is 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 more than 200 technology lawyers work out of some of the world’s most influential technology markets--from California to New York, London to China. They are experienced intellectual property lawyers, shrewd deal-makers and formidable litigators with a keen understanding of what it takes to be successful in the ultra-competitive technology marketplace.
“We are deeply honored to be recognized for serving our Chinese technology clients as this is a major focus for Dorsey,” said Lanier Saperstein, a New York-based Partner who is co-chair of the Firm’s U.S.–China Practice Group. “We are proud that so many prominent Chinese e-commerce, medtech and energy & clean technology companies look to Dorsey for counsel from our lawyers in China and the U.S. and U.K. As they do an increasing amount of business in the U.S. and U.K., 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 IT, Telecoms & E-Commerce is very gratifying.”
Dorsey has received many accolades for its China practice, including a past China Business Law Award in the categories of Banking & Finance, as well as Insurance & Reinsurance and a China Business Law Journal Deal of the Year award.
