Hong Kong, 19 February, 2008 - JSM was named the Best Employer of Choice in Hong Kong and came second in Vietnam, according to the "Employer of Choice Survey 2008" conducted by Asian Legal Business magazine.

The survey studied the environment of a workplace and the needs of lawyers across 11 jurisdictions in Asia, and subsequently found the best and the most favoured firms in the market.

According to the results, quality of work was considered the most important factor in general. In Hong Kong, respondents placed the highest value on a better work-life balance.

JSM received impressive rankings in both Hong Kong and Vietnam. In Hong Kong, the firm was voted into the first place overall and over four of the six categories presented, including financial rewards, professional development and training, performance feedback and supervision, quality and variety of work, workload, billable hours targets and work-life balance, and career and partnership prospects. The survey was sent to 15,000 lawyers across the region.
