DLA Piper has announced that, together with CMS Cameron McKenna, it has won the TrustLaw Collaboration Award for its work with the Anti-Domestic Violence Network/Beijing Fanbao (China), supporting advocacy for anti-domestic violence legislation in China.
The TrustLaw Connect Awards celebrate pro bono projects undertaken by legal teams with high-impact organisations around the world.
DLA Piper and CMS Cameron McKenna lawyers worked collaboratively during the first half of the year to produce a comparative study of laws on domestic violence for Beijing Fanbao.
The domestic violence research covered jurisdictions across Asia, Europe and Africa, which was compiled and translated into Mandarin in order to become a resource for advocating change. Beijing Fanbao has since utilised the report to press for improvements and updates to the anti-domestic violence legislation in China.
