AsianInvestor is pleased to announce the winners of its 2010 Service Provider Awards. Today it's the turn of the law firms, accounting/auditing firms and index providers.

This year, after discussions with market participants, we opted to include a new award: for compliance consulting. A great deal of importance was attached to client feedback in the decision-making process for all the awards, which also incorporated interviews with short-listed candidates.

The awards will be presented at our black-tie dinner at the JW Marriott hotel in Hong Kong, to be held on the evening of Wednesday, November 24. For enquiries and sponsorship opportunities, please e-mail Rebekka Kristin or call her on +852 2122 5203.

Summaries for each winning entry and photographs from the dinner will be published in our magazine’s December edition. Congratulations to the winners.
