Two Faegre Baker Daniels attorneys have been included in the 2015 Chambers Asia directory. Kevin Jones and Claire Zhao, both based in the FaegreBD Shanghai office, have received the designation.
Jones, partner and leader of the firm’s labor and employment practice in China, was recommended by peers who noted his nearly 20 years of legal experience in China. He was described as skilled at handling termination issues and investigations into alleged FCPA and anti-bribery violations. “He gives us advice on the law in practice, the requirements, and then tells us what is culturally acceptable,” one client reviewer said.
Zhao, an associate in the labor and employment practice, was recognized as a solution-focused practitioner. She was noted for her local knowledge and practical approach.
The Chambers Asia- Pacific rankings cover 41 jurisdictions and about 20 separate areas of law. Lawyers and law firms are ranked based on the research of 150 full-time editors and researchers who talk to lawyers and clients and glean firm-submitted information.
Details of this ranking can be found on the Chambers website.
