Matthew Ockleston wins Australian Financial Review Award

Matthew Ockleston wins the Australian Financial Review Client Choice Award

Matthew Ockleston, Kensington Swan’s Auckland Managing Partner and Property expert, has been announced the winner for the Most Client Focused Lawyer Award at the Australian Financial Review 2018 Client Choice Awards. The review recognises Matthew’s commitment to collaborating with his clients to deliver an unbeatable client experience.

As just one of three finalists (and the only New Zealander), Matthew picked up the Most Client-Focused Lawyer award at the gala dinner held at the Sofitel Melbourne on Wednesday 14 March.

Matthew Ockleston comments: “Being named Most Client Focused Lawyer for 2018, is a wonderful achievement. My team and I strive very hard to deliver the best service possible to our clients and we are delighted that clients have recognised the high standard of service that we deliver. It is fantastic to be recognised from the people who matter most in our industry, our clients.”

“Winning this Client Choice Award is an outstanding achievement for Matthew and the firm,” said CEO Charles Spillane. “Matthew is a very humble and dedicated lawyer and winning this award is a huge reflection of his talent. Kensington Swan is committed to delivering an unbeatable client service, which is at the centerpiece of our firm’s strategy, and it is great to see this internal focus being recognised by clients.”

The Financial Review Client Choice Awards are independently researched and judged by Beaton Research based on feedback from clients of the firms that enter the awards. Feedback from clients is that Matthew is “calm, and collected with very considered advice delivered in a timely manner.”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients who participated in the survey and for the continued support of our firm, and also congratulate all the other finalists and winners for the 2018 Financial Review Client Choice awards.
