SSEK founding partner Ira A. Eddymurthy was named Woman Lawyer of the Year at the 2017 ALB Indonesia Law Awards.
The awards, hosted last week in Jakarta by Asian Legal Business, recognized the excellence and outstanding achievements of Indonesia's leading law firms, in-house legal teams, top deals and dealmakers. Winners were selected on the basis of intensive independent research.
Ira was a featured speaker at the recent US-Indonesia Women’s CEO Summit in Washington, DC.
The summit, with a keynote address by Indonesian Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati, brought together C-Suite women from Indonesia and the United States for a "series of lively, open, and uniquely personal conversations on how they did it, how they do it and how they are planning for the future."
