Russell McVeagh partners Sarah Armstrong and David Hoare have been recognised by their clients, with New Zealand category wins at the 2017 International Law Office (ILO) Client Choice Awards.
Sarah Armstrong, head of Russell McVeagh's Litigation practice, has been named the exclusive winner of the New Zealand Litigation category, and David Hoare, Chair of the Russell McVeagh Board, as the exclusive winner of the New Zealand General Corporate category.

Nominations for the awards can only be made by corporate counsel, and this year, organisers noted that over 2,500 nominations were received. The criteria for the awards focus on the ability to add real value to clients’ business above and beyond others in the market.

Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards recognise those partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client service they provide.
