Client Choice 2016
This year, Client Choice recognises 383 winners across 68 jurisdictions worldwide.
Client Choice also recognises winners at state and province level in the United States and Canada. This year,
223 winners across 34 US states and four Canadian provinces have been recognised.
Our research begins with a readership survey of International Law Office (ILO) and Lexology in-house
counsel subscribers. Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on the following client service
criteria: 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.
To ensure that the results cannot be influenced, law firms are not informed when this initial round of
research is conducted. The results of this survey are used to draw up shortlists for each work area.
Shortlisted candidates are then invited to submit up to five referees. The research team conducts follow-up
interviews and additional research where necessary. While based on thorough and coherent research, the
results remain the subjective views of the Client Choice team
