On 6 February 2020, the Client Choice Awards announced over 100 winners from more than 25 jurisdictions for client service excellence. Munir Hassan, Partner and Head of CMS’s Energy and Climate Change Group, has been named as the client favourite in the Energy & Natural Resources category.
Munir Hassan comments: “I am honoured to have received this Client Choice Award. While there have been other awards over the years, to be first nominated and then recognised by this award for the style and quality of my client service specifically is really special.”
The Client Choice Awards are the only awards programme based on nominations by in-house counsel. 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. The criteria for recognition focus on the ability to add real value to clients’ business above and beyond the other players in the market.
