“Our partners account for 21% of Canadian law firm partners that stand apart for the quality of their service,” says Barbara Boake, McCarthy Tétrault’s National Practice Leader. “Knowing that lawyers can only be nominated by corporate counsel, we are extremely proud of this show of trust and recognition from our clients.”

Established in 2005, Lexology Client Choice awards, affiliated with International Law Office (ILO), recognize partners around the world that have been recognized by their clients for the quality of their service. Uniquely, the awards survey senior corporate counsel only, with this year’s winners chosen from a pool of more than 2,500 individual nominations.

Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on specific client service criteria, including: quality of legal advice, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, value for money, responsiveness, effective communication, sharing of expertise, appropriate staffing and use of technology.
