Double win at Who's Who Legal Awards 2010
07 July 2010
Brussels-based partner Ciara Kennedy-Loest has been named 'Global Public Procurement Lawyer of the Year 2010' in the Who's Who Legal Awards. The awards are based on nominations received from clients and private practice professionals.
Hogan Lovells was also named global Insurance & Reinsurance Law Firm of the Year 2010. This marks the sixth consecutive occasion on which this recognition has been gained, with legacy Lovells having won the award every year since its inception in 2005.
According to Who's Who Legal's editor in chief Callum Campbell:
"Ciara Kennedy-Loest received more votes from clients and peers worldwide than any other lawyer in our research. This is the first time she has won the award, and the consistently positive feedback we received from our sources across the globe reflect her exceptional talent and pre-eminence in the field. We have no hesitation in declaring her the leading lawyer in the world for Public Procurement expertise."
The winners are announced in The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers 2010, a compendium edition of all the individual Who's Who Legal publications which is released in July and identifies the leading practitioners across 31 areas of law and over 100 countries.
The awards are based on a number of factors, including the feedback received in the ongoing research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in their favour. Who's Who Legal used the thousands of nominations it has received from clients and private practice professionals to pick out Hogan Lovells, which sees our lawyers listed 12 times across four countries in the Insurance & Reinsurance chapter of the publication - more than any other firm worldwide.
Editor in Chief Callum Campbell said, "To win the Who's Who Legal Law Firm of the Year Award for Insurance & Reinsurance every single year since 2005 demonstrates Hogan Lovells pre-eminent standing in the market. The high esteem in which the firm is held is reflected by the exceptional levels of positive feedback its lawyers received from our sources in a range of countries worldwide. Hogan Lovells is one of an elite group of firms to have won one of our awards every year since its inception, and we are delighted to recognise them as the world's leading Insurance & Reinsurance law firm once again."
This is a significant achievement for the practice and the praise from the publication's editor speaks for itself. We would like to thank everyone for putting us head and shoulders above our competitors.
