Kensington Swan Claims Large Law Firm of the Year Award

Kensington Swan has won the Large Law Firm of the Year Award at the New Zealand Law Awards held last night in Auckland.

The awards, judged by consumers of legal services, recognise excellence in legal performance measured by assessing customer satisfaction, and were attended by all New Zealand’s major law firms.

Kensington Swan also won three of the eight Specialist Awards, including:

- Intellectual Property Law Award

- Jollands Callander Banking and Finance Law Award

In addition, Kensington Swan was first runner up in four categories in the Specialist Awards section.

- Degree to which lawyers demonstrate commerciality of advice

- Service that is value for money

- Ability to achieve optimal outcomes for the client

- An understanding of the client’s business
