Congratulations to Eiger Law!

Eiger Law wins awards with such regularity now that it's no longer news, but I'd like to take a minute to congratulate them for winning the prestigiousAsian Legal Business Employer of Choice Awards for 2012

The rankings are based on a survey sent out to over 20,000 lawyers within the Asian region, and respondents are asked to rate firms on several criteria such as remuneration, information management, quality of work and clients, work/life balance, professional development/training and quality of the firm’s brand. Basically it means that Eiger is the law firm that other lawyers would most like to join! :thumbsup: 

Way to go Eiger, and thanks so much for supporting Taiwanease, both as a company and as moderators! We're so proud!

Taiwanease.com is in the Taipei Times!

Well, this was a great start to the week! Taiwanease.com featured on the FRONT PAGE of the Taipei Times "Features" section. Hurrah for us! The forums have really been picking up steam lately, and so has the number of visitors to our site overall, not just the forums.

As the saying goes, "Rome wasn't built in a day", but I'm glad to see that it's definitely being built!  This week should be a good one - we've got a Taiwanease dinner at the Calcutta Indian Restaurant on Saturday, and after that we're going to The Speakeasy, Taipei's only Irish bar, for St. Patrick's Day drinks. It should be a great week!
