China Business Law Journal, in strategic partnership with Sina Finance, released the list of winners for its A-List 2023-24: Visionaries awards in China’s legal market on 12 December. Huang & Huang is proud to announce that its managing partner Mr. Huang Hui is among of the 100 PRC lawyers selected nationwide for these awards.

The A-List awards of China Business Law Journal, which was first launched in 2016, have witnessed an ever-changing Chinese legal market, with the number of lawyers in China reaching 677,000 in 2023 — double the number seven years earlier.

In response to market feedback, China Business Law Journal have extended the A-List categories to better reflect the nature of the legal profession. The categories are The Visionaries, The Growth Drivers, and Rising Stars. Together, they make up the A-List to accurately reflect the gradual maturity and development of the market, and to recognise elite lawyers who have assumed different functions and are at different stages of their career.

CBLJ Review:

The Visionaries acknowledges seasoned lawyers who hold key management positions in their firms and prominent public positions. They are lawyers – excellent ones at that – and they are much more. As founders, managing partners or leading partners of certain practice areas, they face difficulties that far exceed the common legal realm, including but not limited to plotting a course for their law firm’s future growth, enabling it to stand out amid increasingly fierce competition. 

All of the selected lawyers have earned the trust of clients through their proven legal expertise and visionary insights. They have the strategic thinking and business acumen to present solutions that strike a harmonious balance between legal compliance and commercial viability. It is this track record and comprehensive skill set that earn them the trust and admiration of corporate executives and law firms.

Outside the law firms, they take up key positions, legal or otherwise, at lawyers’ associations, trade associations, arbitration institutions and universities, among other platforms, or take part in the drafting or review of laws and regulations, contributing to the overall advancement of the legal sector.
