Each year, Forbes Magazine names its “30 under 30”—a list of 30 influential young people in each of several industries and fields, across three geographies. And each year, our Firm has claimed at least one alum or colleague on each of the lists. The 2020 lists for the U.S. and Europe were released earlier, with 13 alums included. All in all, 19 alumni were named to the three lists.

The list for Asia was released in April. Here are the alums that are on this year's list:
