For the fourth consecutive year, Azam & Rai has been recommended by The Asia-Pacific Legal 500 (A Guide to Asia’s Commercial Law Firms) as one of the leading law firms in the areas of Banking & Finance and Corporate/M&A in Pakistan. The Asia-Pacific Legal 500 is a UK-based organization, which ranks top law firms in the Asia-Pacific region and publishes its findings in an annual publication.

In the latest The Asia-Pacific Legal 500 (2008-2009 Edition), Azam & Rai is ranked amongst the top 22 law firms in the Banking & Finance sector and, once again, amongst the top 20 law firms in the Corporate/M&A sector in Pakistan.

In its commentary, The Asia-Pacific Legal 500 (2008-2009 Edition) states:

Though smaller than some rivals, five-lawyer Azam & Rai enjoys an excellent reputation for corporate and commercial advice to clients such as Saudi Pak Commercial Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Stahl Holdings BV and Terraco Group, and provides 'personalised legal services’ and has 'an appreciation of a client’s commercial needs’. Rai Muhammad Saleh Azam is 'an incisive all-round lawyer who combines his experience of litigation and transactional work to provide very good commercial legal advice’.
