Established in 2005, the Client Choice awards recognise law firms and lawyers that stand apart for their excellent client care and quality of their service. The criteria for this recognition focus on an ability to add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market. Uniquely, law firms and partners can only be nominated by corporate counsel. In each jurisdiction, the Client Choice award is presented to only one lawyer per practice area.

The client service criteria against which individual lawyers are rated include 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.
