Harneys is delighted to announce that Vicky Lord, Shanghai Managing Partner, and Ian Mann, Asia Managing Partner, have been recognised by China Business Law Journal in their prestigious A-List 2020 as two of China’s Elite 100 Lawyers (Foreign firm).
The A-List identifies the top 100 private practice lawyers in mainland China and Hong Kong and is based on extensive research conducted by China Business Law Journal. Elite lawyers are selected from the nominations of professionals at a wide range of Chinese and international companies, law firms and other organisations.

She has assisted clients with overturning injunctions in the BVI, helping secure domestic PRC listings in contentious scenarios and securing asset recoveries for some of China’s leading financial institutions, blue-chip listed companies and ultra-high net worth individuals. One client commented “This accolade is well deserved. Vicky is a commercially savvy lawyer and we achieved an excellent result because of her advice.”
