The awards honour leading women lawyers from across the Asia Pacific region based on the complexity of their work and on their advocacy, influence, and thought leadership to promote women in the practice of law and within practice area specialisms. 

Russell McVeagh CEO Jo Avenell says, "We are immensely proud of our distinguished female lawyers who have been honoured at a regional level as leaders in their fields of law. These women each place importance on supporting and encouraging women to advance in the legal profession so it is great to also see this recognised."
