Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards (in association with Lexology and the International Law Office) recognise law firms and partners that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. The criteria for this recognition focus on an ability to add real value to clients’ businesses above and beyond other practitioners in the market.
Uniquely, law firm individuals can only be nominated for these awards by corporate counsel. Shortlists are compiled following comprehensive research and the canvassing of tens of thousands of in-house counsel from the Lexology readership. Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers on 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.
Commenting, Robert Johnson said:
“I am delighted to have been shortlisted for this award. My team and I always strive to provide excellent results for my clients and it is gratifying to be recognised by counsel and nominated in particular for client service. I look forward to the announcement of the winners for this year’s awards.”
Robert Johnson and his team act each year in about 35 claims with values ranging from £20,000 to £25 million and is proud of its record of winning over 95% of its clients’ claims against professionals.
