Gowlings practitioners Michel A. Chartrand and James Tumbridge were honoured among the 2013 Client Choice Award winners at a gala dinner in London on February 27, 2013. This year, the UK-based International Law Office (ILO) recognized 355 individual winners across 70 jurisdictions worldwide; and — in partnership with Lexology — 222 individual winners across 33 US states and four Canadian provinces.

Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards recognize law firms and their professionals that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. Criteria for the awards focus on an ability to add real value to clients' businesses above and beyond other players in the market. Uniquely, nominations for these awards can be made only by corporate counsel.

“We can think of no higher accolade than to be recognized by our clients for delivering the outstanding client service that is the essence of our business,” said Gowlings' Firm Managing Partner, External, Stephen Pike.

Commended for his communication skills and knowledge of IP law, Michel A. Chartrand received the award under the intellectual property (trade-marks) category for Ontario. As stated by one of his clients, “He provides great value via his legal and business skills, his character and integrity, work ethic and problem-solving and risk-mitigating approach to our matters.”

James Tumbridge, who won for litigation in the United Kingdom, received high praise for the quality of his work and for his attentive and accessible approach to client service. As one of his clients said, “James takes the time to ensure that he is well briefed in all areas, understands the client’s business needs and is conscious of the cost implications in order to deliver good value for money.”
