Debevoise Recognised in Asia Business Law Journal’s Deal of the Year Awards

12 March 2018

Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has been recognised by Asia Business Law Journal in its annual Deal of the Year Awards. The recognition comes following Debevoise’s role advising long-standing client AIA Group (AIA) in the extension of its bancassurance distribution partnership with PT Bank Central Asia (BCA) in Indonesia.

The annual awards from Asia Business Law Journal recognise the year’s top deals, based on monetary value, deal significance, relevance, complexity and innovation. The Asia Business Law Journal is an Asia-focused magazine published by Vantage Asia Publishing Limited, an independent publisher based in Hong Kong.

The award marks another accolade picked up by Debevoise’s Asian insurance practice this year after the team was recognised by China Business Law Journal in the insurance and reinsurance category.

The Debevoise team advising AIA in the award winning matter was led by Hong Kong partner Edwin Northover, with assistance from associate Wen-Wei Lai.

It has developed a reputation for leading on the market’s most ambitious transactions, regularly working with insurers on matters that grow, reshape or refocus their business, both in Asia and around the world.
