Liga Merwin receives the prestigious Client Choice Award for the second year in a row
We are delighted to announce that Managing Partner Liga Merwin has received the exclusive Client Choice 2019 Award within Competition & Antitrust in Latvia for the second year in a row.
The award winners were announced at an annual ceremony in London on February 7, 2019.
This award is particularly noteworthy, as it is only the third occasion that the award is being received in Latvia in any area of law. In 2018 Liga also received the Client Choice Award within Competition & Antitrust in Latvia.
Client Choice award was established in 2005 and recognises those law firm partners around the world who stand out for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. The criteria for this recognition focuses on an ability to add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market. Uniquely, law firm partners can be nominated only by corporate counsel.
The research for the award begins with a readership survey of in-house counsel subscribers to International Law Office and Lexology, and it also gathers feedback at several international in-house counsel events and via the Client Choice website. Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms 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. To ensure that the results cannot be influenced, law firms are not informed when this initial round of research is conducted.
