Almazar wins SE Asia Young Lawyer of the Year award

by

The Filipino Times’ Legal Professional of the Year awardee, lawyer Barney Almazar, known for his community advocacies, has been named Southeast Asia Young Lawyer of the Year in the 13th Asian Legal Business Law Awards, besting more than 450 nominees at the awarding ceremony held at The St. Regis Singapore on May 18.

“I was so overwhelmed when my name was called for the Young Lawyer of the Year Award as it is something that I consider to be very special for two reasons. The first is that it is given as a recognition of the next generation of lawyers who lives and works where the real action happens not in the court or corporate boardroom but in the streets and homes where people live and engage the communities.

“Second, because it is a challenge for us young lawyers to ensure that the legal profession is not just a career path but a responsible and accountable vocation to care for the lives of everyone and not just a few,” Almazar said.

The 13th Asian Legal Business Awards is the pre-eminent legal awards in the region hosted by Asian Legal Business. It was held to honor the best and the brightest legal stars from Singapore and Southeast Asia in 43 categories.

Almazar is the Philippines’ Young Lawyer of the Year in 2016 and one of recipients of The Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) of the Philippines in 2015. (Gelin Castro)
