Eiger a Finalist at BCCT Better Business Awards

Eiger is proud to have been a finalist in the inaugural British Chamber of Commerce Taipei’s Better Business Awards. Held at Taipei’s Sherwood Hotel last Thursday, the event “recognizes businesses that have gone above and beyond in important socially conscious categories”: Diversity, Social Enterprise, and Corporate Social Responsibility. Eiger was a finalist in the diversity category, and indeed our numbers speak for themselves: a female attorney rate of 56 percent (way above the national average) and a foreign professional percentage of 43 percent. Eiger was the first Taiwan law firm to be recognized in Asian Legal Business magazine’s “Diversity List” issue, and the firm has long been openly supportive of LGBT events and causes.
