For the third time in a row, Igor Svechkar, Asters' partner, has been named the exclusive winner of the Client Choice Award for Competition in Ukraine. The winners of the Awards have been announced by the London-based International Law Office (ILO) at the gala dinner on 27 February 2013.
Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards are unique in their focus on clients' perspective. This focus is ensured by the fact that nominations can only be submitted by corporate counsel, the people who directly interact with outside lawyers on the client side and actually know their work. 2013 winners have been selected from 2000 such nominations.
The awards are the result of ILO's extensive survey which also focuses exclusively on the opinion of the clients. The winners are chosen based on such factors as the quality of their advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective client communication, billing transparency, and response time.
