More Than 90 K&L Gates Lawyers Throughout Asia-Pacific Recognised in 2025 Best Lawyers, Ones to Watch Editions

18 April 2024

Best Lawyers, a peer review guide to the legal profession, has recognised more than 90 K&L Gates lawyers across the Asia-Pacific region in the 2025 editions of its guides, covering Australia, Japan, and Singapore.

Of those named, Australian partners Chris Nikou and Phil Vickery were named Lawyer of the Year in Sports Law and Franchise Law, respectively. This accolade is particularly noteworthy, as it is only bestowed on one standout lawyer for each practice area in each jurisdiction. Additionally, nearly 30 of the firm’s lawyers were recognized as Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch, a list which recognises junior lawyers or those who have typically been in practice for five to nine years.

The Best Lawyers guide highlights top legal talent, selected by peers within the same geographical region and legal practice area, through millions of votes a year.
