The Group's Asia practices were described as "very strong and knowledgeable" by Chambers and as "a leader" compared to other firms operating in the region by The Legal 500. Among the comments from clients and industry peers, the firm was praised for being "consistently practical" and "very commercial" with "insights into a raft of recent Cayman law developments that many of the other Cayman law firms do not have".

Hong Kong Partners Ann Ng, Anthony Webster, Matt Roberts and Jonathan Silver received the 'Leading Individuals' distinction by The Legal 500, while Terence Ho was acknowledged for his expertise under the 'Next Generation Partners' category.
