About the Client Choice Award
The International Law Office and Lexology, the organizations bestowing this honor, report that the Client Choice Award “honors partners around the world who stand apart for their outstanding commitment to client service. They add that this year’s awards are a result of more than 2,000 nominations from corporate counsel; law firms and attorneys cannot self-nominate or lobby to be added to the list. Additionally, they report that a group of researchers then evaluate client service and the ability to add real value to a client’s business among other factors in determining the annual award winners.”
