ILO Client Choice Awards 2011 - Lenz & Staehelin wins three times

The International Law Office (ILO) has revealed the winning firms and individuals of the ILO Client Choice Award 2011, with Lenz & Staehelin succeeding in three different categories. The firm was rewarded for its outstanding client work as national winner for Switzerland. Furthermore, Benoît Merkt won the price as the leading individual in the field of competition law, and François Rayroux was chosen as the winner in the category banking.

These prestigious awards recognise those law firms and individuals around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their business. According to ILO, the criteria focus particularly on law firms’ ability to “add real value to their clients’ business above and beyond the other players in the market”. Winners were chosen across 54 jurisdictions, based on more than 2’000 individual client assessments.
