The recent annual Asia Pacific 150 analysis in Lawyer Weekly makes interesting reading. The international firms continue to grow market share in Asia Pacific as they see Asia as the driver of global growth. Whilst the Australian firms have all been active, the Chinese firms dominate the top of the local firms along with King & Wood Mallesons (the only true regional player, comprising local Australian and Chinese firms).

Meanwhile three of the Big Four accounting firms make the Top 20 of the international firms, with PWC leading in 9th, followed by EY and Deloitte and then KPMG sneaking onto the list in equal 49th place.

I wonder whether we'll see all Big Four firms in the international top 10 next year?
