Bell Gully: New Zealand Law Firm of the Year for fifth straight year

Bell Gully has been named the IFLR New Zealand Law Firm of the Year for an unprecedented fifth consecutive year.

Firm chairman Roger Partridge and corporate partner David Flacks were at the IFLR Asia Awards 2008 ceremony in Hong Kong last night to collect the award.

Respected global legal publisher International Financial Law Review presents annual awards to the market-leading law firms in major jurisdictions in Asia-Pacific, recognising the outstanding advisers in international corporate and financial transactions over the past year.

It is the fifth year in a row and the sixth time in seven years that Bell Gully has received top honours in New Zealand.

Roger Partridge says receiving the prestigious IFLR award for the fifth year running is a “very satisfying achievement”.

“We are aware that winning this award is dependent on providing our clients with both the highest level of service and expertise. This would not be possible without the hard work of our dedicated people in Auckland and Wellington.

“We focus each year on how we can improve the service we offer our clients and on how we can make Bell Gully the best place to work for talented people. While this is something we never take for granted, we believe our commitment and consistency in this is the platform for continuing success.

“With the support of our clients, and the outstanding team of lawyers at Bell Gully, we will continue to challenge ourselves to set the standard as New Zealand’s leading law firm.”
