Lowndes’ expertise recognised third year running

March 2016


We’re delighted that Lowndes is once again ranked as a highly recommended firm in the leading law firm directory, Chambers and Partners Asia Pacific 2016.

The directory recognised our expertise in Corporate/Commercial law, Restructuring/Insolvency and Shipping, where we were given the highest ranking (Band 1).

Lowndes was described as having “a strong team”.

The directory also highlighted a number of our lawyers as leaders in their fields, including Michael McCarthy in Shipping (Band 1), Mark Lowndes in Corporate/Commercial, and Mike Whale and Jennifer Tunna in Restructuring/Insolvency law.

The firm was recognised for “high-quality insolvency practice, acting for both receivers and companies”. This year, Chambers and Partners paid particular attention to Mike Whale, calling him “a doyen of the insolvency market who can be relied on as a real intellectual in this space”.

We’re also pleased that the directory recognised our expertise on many insolvency issues. Jennifer Tunna was singled out as an ‘associate’ to watch’ this year, the directory saying she was a “strong senior associate” who was well regarded by her peers and “recognised for her experience advising financial organisations on high-profile corporate restructurings”.

We’re proud of our professional team and the expertise we can offer our clients.

We look forward to building on these strong results throughout the year by applying our specialist experience and expertise across our range of practice areas.
