Minter Ellison Rudd Watts News Latest Scorecard in International Legal Directories


The latest edition of three respected international legal directories were published recently, each ranking law firms by country and by practice area.

The three directories – theAsia Pacific Legal 500 (APL500), Chambers Global Guide to the World's Leading Business Lawyers, and the International Financial Law Review (IFLR) – provide good benchmarks for the legal services market and independent recognition of both leading individual lawyers and leading practice groups in the Asia Pacific region.

Minter Ellison Rudd Watts people and practices achieved some outstanding results:
- practice areas such as Dispute Resolution, Restructuring & Insolvency and Tax all maintained their top tier position in the APL500
- mentioned for the first time amongst Chambers’ 'leading individuals' were Andrew Matthews (competition), Sean Gollin (insolvency), Matthew Andrews (public law), plus two notable ‘up and comers’, Chris O’Brien (banking and finance) and Chris Young (IP)
- the firm’s insolvency practice retained its top tier position in the IFLR, whilst the banking and finance practice moved up a tier from the previous year.

Particularly pleasing is the number of Minter Ellison Rudd Watts’ lawyers that were recognised as 'leading individuals' by each directory. In all, eight were singled out in APL500 and 14 in Chambers Global – a great result.

Some quotes from clients about the firm and individual lawyers were also reported in the directories:

- 'it ranks as one of the most experienced, thanks to the track record and skills of its lawyers'
- 'all practical lawyers who are a pleasure to deal with'
- 'clients go to this team for its work on specialised transactions and advice on the hard issues'
