Corrs Chambers Westgarth Partner Lizzie Knight has been named the exclusive winner of the prestigious Client Choice Awards in the General Corporate category for Australia.

The global Client Choice Awards recognise partners around the world for their excellence in client service and ability to add real value to clients’ businesses above and beyond others in their market.

“Lizzie should be justifiably proud of this achievement which speaks to her dedication and unwavering enthusiasm for her clients,” said Corrs Partner and CEO John W.H. Denton AO.

“To be recognised for her focus on providing her clients the best possible client service, while at the same time delivering excellence in legal advice combined with a deep understanding of the commercial realities for her clients’ businesses, is a just reward for the passion she applies to delivering the best possible outcomes,” he said.

According to Lizzie to receive such an accolade was surprising yet gratifying at the same time.

“This is a great honour for me. I enjoy delivering value to my clients by managing an effective and efficient deal process and helping my clients close deals. I feel lucky and proud to have clients who have chosen to nominate and support me in their deals and for this award. It inspires me to set my goals even higher,” she said.

The unique approach to the Client Choice Awards allows only those partners nominated by corporate counsels to enter, with the winners chosen from more than 2,000 individual client assessments.

The Client Choice Awards, now in their twelfth year, are jointly organised by global legal publisher Lexology and the International Law Office and this year more than 2,500 nominations from around the world were received.
