DLA Piper’s Katie Carson Wins Notable International Award

DLA Piper’s Katie Carson Wins Notable International Award

DLA Piper partner Katie Carson has been chosen by the international Client Choice Awards ( as the exclusive winner of the legal services Banking Category for New Zealand. She has now won this award for two years in a row.

Katie joined DLA Piper’s New Zealand Financial Services team in May 2017, with 20 years of broad transactional and regulatory experience in the domestic and international financial markets. This award recognises her commitment to outstanding client service. Katie is passionate about working with clients as part of the team, bringing clarity and strategy to complex problems.

The Client Choice Awards were established worldwide 13 years ago. They are convened by the International Law Office ( in association with international law news provider Lexology.

The idea behind the awards is to identify and recognise law firms and partners worldwide who have demonstrated an ability to add real value to clients' businesses. Nominees can only be promoted by in-house counsel (clients) and it is done without the knowledge of the nominee.

The Client Choice Awards gather feedback, then clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on quality of advice, commercial awareness, industry knowledge and strategic thinking. Shortlisted candidates are then asked to submit client referees.

Winners are regarded as the ‘best of the best’ amongst lawyers worldwide for the client care that they provide and the quality of their service.

'This is prestigious recognition on a global scale of Katie’s excellent contribution to service in the Banking and Finance sector in New Zealand,' says Martin Wiseman, DLA Piper Country Managing Partner in New Zealand. 'She’s simply outstanding.'
