The Client Choice awards recognise the best law firm partners around the world. The awards are based on excellent client feedback on the partners’ work. Partners can only be nominated by the clients. This year’s winners were chosen based on over 2,500 client assessments.
Clients are asked to rate the following client service criteria: quality of legal advice, commercial awareness, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, value for money, responsiveness, effective communication, clarity of documentation, sharing of expertise, appropriate staffing, project management, use of technology, loyalty and ethics.
