Established in 2005, Client Choice Awards recognize those law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. The criteria for this recognition focus on an ability to add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market.

Unlike other awards, you can be nominated for the Client Choice Awards programme only by corporate counsel. This year, according to the organizers, over 2,500 nominations were received.

Alina Popescu was designated as the exclusive winner of the Competition & Antitrust category for Romania. Alina was praised by her clients for offering excellent customer care and tailored advice as well as for her responsiveness.

Gelu Maravela was recognized as the exclusive winner of the M&A category for Romania. He was praised by his clients for his ability to develop close and efficient working relationships, being known on the market for his expertise and great project management skills.

The Client Choice 2020 Awards Ceremony took place last week in London.
