IFLR is delighted to announce that the research process for the 2018 IFLR Asia Awards has begun.

Deadlines and criteria

The deadline for submitting information to us is November 16 2017, so please get in touch as soon as possible if you wish to participate. To be considered, deals must have closed between January 1 2017 and December 31 2017. Deals that do not reach financial close before this date will not be eligible.

Submissions for deals that close after the November 16 deadline but before the end of the year must be received by January 3 2018.

The IFLR awards are based solely on legal innovation; we are interested in deals that break new legal ground and set market precedents. We also only accept deals of a cross-border nature that have closed in Asia, excluding the Middle-East, in the past year.

Submission forms

All the relevant information on categories, deadlines and methodology used can be found in the awards summary.

Please find links to the submission forms, which contain the following:

Deal of the year

Team of the year

Financial services regulatory team

Most innovative national firm

In-house bank team

Rising star law firm of the year


Please send all your submissions and inquiries to james.wilson@legalmediagroup.com. If you wish to submit deals done by more than one of your firm’s regional offices, we would like to request that all of them be sent directly to us by your firm’s head office in Asia.

Nominations will be announced on our website in January 2018. The awards will be announced at the annual dinner in Hong Kong’s Shangri-La Hotel on March 1.
