Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has been named as a top tier firm in three categories in the In-House Community Awards 2021.

The firm has been awarded China Firm of the Year 2021 in the Energy & Natural Resources, International Arbitration and Projects and Project Financing categories. The firm has also won Hong Kong Firm of the Year 2021 in the International Arbitration and the Real Estate & Construction categories.

We are grateful to our clients for the trust that they place in us to support them on their landmark infrastructure and energy projects across the globe, in what has been a very challenging year for them.”
