McCarthy Tétrault is honoured with four Lexology Client Choice Awards

Toronto, February 28, 2013 — McCarthy Tétrault is pleased to announce that at a gala in London, UK last night, Lexology honoured the firm and three of its partners with 2013 Client Choice Awards. The following were recognized for adding real value to clients’ businesses, above and beyond other players in the market:

  • firm of choice in British Columbia for overall excellence
  • partner Robert Metcalfe for his expertise in banking in Québec
  • partner Earl Phillips for his outstanding employment and labour work in British Columbia
  • partner Roger Taplin for his leadership in energy and natural resources law in British Columbia

"These awards are a real signal to us that in our focus on serving clients exceptionally well, we have been successful," said Paul Boniferro, National Leader, Practices and People. "It is a terrific honour to be recognized in the range of service areas that are most important to our clients."

Lexology’s Client Choice Awards were established in 2005 to recognize law firms and lawyers around the world who stand apart for outstanding client service. The client service criteria were quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, response time, sharing of expertise and use of technology. This was Lexology’s first year to survey the Canadian and U.S. markets.

Its audience includes Fortune 500, FT Global 500 and FT Euro 500 companies, and all members of the Association of Corporate Counsel.
