The most successful lawyers go to great lengths to ensure they provide their clients with consistent and high-quality service.

As part of the research process for asialaw Profiles we survey buyers of legal services and ask them to assess and rate the lawyers they used for their quality of service (1: Poor to 5: Excellent) in the following attributes:


  • Client relationship management
  • Communication
  • Listening to and implementing feedback
  • Meeting deadlines
  • Problem solving
  • Responsiveness and accessibility
  • Risk management


  • Country knowledge
  • Industry sector knowledge
  • Innovative solutions
  • Knowledge of your business
  • Legal knowledge and ability


English language capability (if applicable)


  • Only lawyers with the highest overall aggregate ratings have been included. The scores must also be backed up with detailed feedback based on the quality of service received.
  • In jurisdictions where no lawyer is listed indicates insufficient feedback/evidence received.

Here are the results from the 2021 edition. Congratulations from the asialaw team to all lawyers listed!


A special thanks to our sponsors who contributed a Q&A on how they achieve Client Service Excellence!!
