Morgan Stanley recognises Linklaters as the leading internationally-headquartered law firm in Asia for Diversity and Inclusion

Global law firm Linklaters has been awarded ‘leading internationally-headquartered firm’ at the Morgan Stanley Asia Outside Counsel Diversity Awards 2018. Morgan Stanley commended the firm’s meticulously structured and globally consistent yet jurisdictionally-tailored approach, led by a passionate and committed cross-border team.

Designed to recognise Morgan Stanley’s regional legal service providers for their excellence in diversity and inclusion, the awards were conducted through an in-depth survey and interview process managed by the Firm’s Asia Pacific Legal & Compliance Division. 

Eric Grossman, Chief Legal Officer, who presented Linklaters with the award in Hong Kong, said, “We are delighted to name Linklaters as winners of this year’s D&I awards for Asia. Competition for the awards was very tough this year, which we see as a very good sign for the advancement of Diversity & Inclusion both in the legal sector and more generally in the region. The firm demonstrated not only dedication and commitment to creating inclusive workforces internally but also in promoting diversity externally within their respective wider communities.” 
“At Linklaters, being a leader in diversity and inclusion is an integral part of our firm’s strategy and vision. We are honoured to have been recognised and are thankful and proud of our colleagues who make such wins a reality,” said Nathalie Hobbs, Linklaters Asia Managing Partner.
