At an awards gala in Hong Kong on November 9, Euromoney Legal Media Group honored White & Case with two Asia Women in Business Law Awards: Best international firm for talent management, and Best in capital markets for Kaya Proudian (Singapore). Proudian won the capital markets award for the second year in a row.
The awards celebrate the advancement of women in the legal profession throughout Asia, highlighting the best initiatives for gender diversity, innovation, work-life balance, pro bono work and talent management.
The Firm's wins at the Asia Women in Business Law Awards come on the heels of three awards at Euromoney Legal Media Group's Americas Women in Business Law Awards and five at its European Women in Business Law Awards. Just last August, the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) honored White & Case with its 2016 Law Firm Diversity Award.
Proudian is the executive partner of White & Case's Singapore office, and head of the firm's Asia Capital Markets Practice. She concentrates on international securities and finance work, and advises public and private issuers, underwriters and selling shareholders on a wide variety of equity and debt offerings and exchange listings. Sovereign governments also seek Proudian’s counsel in connection with external debt offerings.
