RHTLaw Taylor Wessing congratulates Managing Partner Tan Chong Huat on being listed as a Client Choice 2016 winner under the category of “General Corporate”.
Chong Huat was recognised for his excellent client care and quality of service. A factor contributing to this ranking was based on clients’ testimonials, indicating his ability to add real value to their business above and beyond the other players in the market.
Client Choice research begins with a readership survey of in-house counsel subscribers to International Law Office and Lexology, but they also gather feedback at several international in-house counsel events and via the Client Choice website. Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on the following client service criteria: 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. To ensure that the results cannot be influenced, law firms were not informed when this initial round of research was conducted.
The full rankings can be viewed here.
