Seven New Zealand lawyers have won awards in New Zealand categories in the International Law Office (ILO) Client Choice Awards 2017.
The awards were established in 2005 and are run by the Global Business Media Group publication Lexology. Nominations for an award may only be made by in-house counsel. Client and other feedback is used to draw up shortlists by country and work area, and shortlisted candidates are then invited to submit up to five client referees. The research team conducts follow-up intereviews and selects the winner.

Katie Carson (Kensington Swan).
Sarah Sinclair (Minter Ellison Rudd Watts).
David Hoare (Russell McVeagh).
Intellectual Property: Patents
Greg Lynch (Catalyst Intellectual Property).
Intellectual Property: Trademarks
Christopher Young (Minter Ellison Rudd Watts).
