Five Morrison & Foerster lawyers have received 2018 Client Choice awards: Berlin senior of counsel Lokke Moerel for IT & Internet; New York partner Anna Pinedo for Derivatives; San Francisco partner Jackie Liu for Corporate; Singapore of counsel Maria Steeples for M&A; and Tokyo partner Gary Smith for M&A.
Now in its 12th year, the Client Choice Awards, run by Lexology, recognize lawyers around the world who are dedicated to excellent client care and the quality of their service. Evaluations are focused on the ability to "add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market."
Lexology is an online library service that is known for its newsletter of law firm client alerts, articles, and blogs delivered to the desktops of senior business lawyers worldwide on a daily basis.
Winning lawyers are nominated by senior in-house counsel and are judged on a number of client service criteria, including response time, flexibility, transparency, and commercial market awareness.
