SSEK Legal Consultants has been named the 2014 Indonesian Law Firm of the Year by Who's Who Legal. This is the third-straight year SSEK has received this honor and the sixth overall. We were also recognized in 2013, 2012, 2008, 2007 and 2006.
SSEK's partners and advisers received sufficient nominations from their clients and peers to be listed by Who's Who Legal seven times across seven practice areas. Lawyers from SSEK were recognized more times than those from any other firm in Indonesia.
Founding partner Ira A. Eddymurthy was recognized for her outstanding work in three practice areas: banking, capital markets, and mergers and acquisitions.
Senior foreign adviser Darrell R. Johnson was noted for his work in the energy sector, while Michael D. Twomey was recognized for project finance.
Richard D. Emmerson was recognized by Who's Who Legal as a leading practitioner in management labor and employment.
Who's Who Legal lists only the leading lawyers in each practice area, based on the findings of an independent six-month research process that encompasses feedback from private practitioners, clients, and other experts. Only lawyers who score most highly according to the independent international research criteria of Who's Who Legal are listed.
Ira Eddymurthy said it was always an honor to be recognized by Who's Who Legal. "What makes it even more special is that this award is based on the feedback of our peers and, most importantly, our clients. This award is a tribute to the lawyers at SSEK and the quality work that they do on a daily basis for clients across a range of practice areas."
She said everyone at SSEK would continue to focus on providing world-class legal services and helping clients realize their business goals, and that she looked forward to a seventh Indonesian Law Firm of the Year award next year.
Who's Who Legal is the official research partner of the International Bar Association and a strategic research partner of the ABA Section of International Law.
