Welcome to the ALB Korea Law Awards 2020

 

ALB'S FIRST-EVER VIRTUAL AWARDS CEREMONY
Date:    Thursday, November 12, 2020

Asian Legal Business (ALB) is proud to present the ALB Korea Law Awards 2020, now in its 8th year. These prestigious awards will pay tribute to the outstanding performance of private practitioners and in-house teams in Korea and around the region. Put forth your own law firm, in-house team, or other teams you have worked with in the past year to recognize their accomplishments and efforts.

As the health and safety of our participants are our priority, after careful consideration, the awards will be hosted virtually this year on 12 November 2020.

ALB has been closely monitoring South Korea's health environment and protocols in relation to COVID-19 and we understand the need to respond with increasing care and responsibility, both towards the local legal community as well as the guests from other cities who are planning to travel for the event. With social distancing being widely implemented to abate the spread of COVID-19, hosting events online would definitely eliminate the anxiety brought by physical contact at the venue.

A continuous connection is especially important in these uncertain times, and we are determined to keep ALB’s commitment to delivering the finest event experience to the legal community.

Let us celebrate together ALB’s first-ever virtual awards ceremony of Korea at the comfort of our homes with our favorite food and drinks!
