Carey Olsen's Anthony McKenzie named one of the leading lawyers in Chinese market

Carey Olsen Singapore managing partner Anthony McKenzie has been featured in China Business Law Journal's prestigious A-List for the third year running, consistently recognising him as one of the best private practice lawyers in the Chinese market.

Anthony advises on a wide range of offshore corporate, investment funds and finance transactions. He is a specialist in Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands and Bermuda law and is one of only two partners in Singapore admitted to practise these three key offshore laws. Anthony is also ranked as a leading offshore lawyer by each of The Legal 500, IFLR1000, Chambers Global, Chambers Asia-Pacific and The Asia Business Law Journal.

China Business Law Journal conduct rigorous research to form their annual A-List, and this year received over ten thousand recommendations from in-house counsel, partners and legal professionals from Chinese and international law firms. The final list is announced, identifying 150 of the most elite practitioners in Chinese firms and 120 practitioners from foreign law firms with a focus on China-related business.

Commenting on his recognition, Anthony said: "It is a privilege to have once again been named in China Business Law Journal's A-List and as the only offshore lawyer based in Singapore on the list this year. The real recognition should go to my incredible team in Singapore who support our corporate practice, including Tom Katsaros, Maggie Yan, Susan McKinstray, Rebecca Lee, Rachel Yao, Eng How Cheow, Wei Xun Toh and Azmil Wahab."

This recognition follows Carey Olsen Singapore's recent inclusion in The Straits Times' 'Singapore Best Law Firms 2023' list and it being one of only two offshore firms ranked Tier 1 by Legal 500 Asia in Singapore.

Carey Olsen is now the world's leading offshore law firm based on the consolidated rankings of the principal legal directories, The Legal 500 and Chambers.
