Travers Thorp Alberga is pleased to announce that the recently published 2012 edition of Chambers Asia-Pacific ranks the firm amongst leading offshore law firms in the Asia-Pacific region. Chambers notes that Travers Thorp Alberga is well regarded for its client focus and hands-on approach, and quotes sources as saying:

“The pleasure of dealing with them is that everything is kept simple and user-friendly.”

“The partners know our long-term aims and we can rely on them to get things done.”

Three individual partners in the Hong Kong office have also been recognised as leading offshore practitioners in the region:

Richard Thorp is described as having a wealth of experience in securities, formation of private equity and hedge funds, as well as IPOs, and Chambers adds that clients consider him to be “an outstanding Cayman lawyer who is very flexible and incredibly hands-on.”

Everton Robertson is lauded as “a very good offshore practitioner in Hong Kong who is responsive and commercial-minded.”

Harriet Unger is praised as being “extremely attentive with a solid understanding of Cayman law.”

Chambers Asia-Pacific’s rankings and editorial commentary are based on independent research and interviews with clients and other purchasers of legal services. Chambers & Partners is one of the premier directories for legal services and in a recent survey of 20,000 in-house counsel over half reported that their directory of choice when reviewing law firms and individual lawyers is Chambers & Partners.
