HONG KONG, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Conflict-free international law firm Kobre & Kim has been recognized as one of the top firms in the area of anti-corruption in this year's China Business Law Awards.
Awarded annually by The China Business Law Journal, the China Business Law Awards recognize the most innovative and sophisticated legal work undertaken in China over the past year. The independent awards are based on nominations received from China-focused corporate counsel and legal professionals around the world. Winners are determined through a select nomination and justification process that considers each firm's landmark deals, cases and other notable achievements.
Kobre & Kim's Asia Investigations team is led by four former government attorneys with experience from their prior service as U.S. Department of Justice prosecutors and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission enforcement lawyers. With a team of attorneys fluent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Shanghainese, Korean, and Hindi, among others, the firm is regularly called upon to represent Asia based companies and individuals in responding to U.S. Government inquiries and enforcement actions, involving allegations including FCPA violations, accounting and securities fraud, money laundering, and other alleged financial irregularities.
"It is extremely gratifying to receive this award from such an important and influential media organization in the region," said William McGovern, a former U.S. Securities and Exchange attorney from the firm's Hong Kong office. "Our Asia team is honored to be recognized for its unique offerings in the region, including a highly-skilled team of former federal prosecutors who are resident in Asia, fluent in local languages and experienced in conducting seamless global investigations."
