(New York, New York)—Andrews Kurth Kenyon LLP is pleased to announce that New York Intellectual Property and Technology Partner James Rosini has been recognized in the 2017 Client Choice Awards.

Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards recognize those partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client service they provide. The criteria for the awards focus on the ability to add real value to clients’ business above and beyond other players in the market. Uniquely, these awards survey senior corporate counsel only, with this year’s winners chosen from a pool of more than 2,000 individual client assessments.

With more than 30 years’ experience handling litigation and counseling matters concerning all aspects of intellectual property, James focuses his practice on patent, trademark, copyright and unfair competition law. He also handles related advertising, entertainment, publishing, music, computer, internet, domain name and right of publicity issues. He has specific experience advising leading companies whose present circumstances require rebranding on an emergency basis. James earned his J.D. in 1978, with honors, from the University of Miami School of Law. He received his B.A., with honors, from the University of Notre Dame in 1975.

The Client Choice website is a fully searchable online resource and includes quotes from satisfied customers in the “What clients said” section. Their extensive research has been specially designed to assist clients in finding the best lawyers for client service worldwide and facilitate referrals between client service-focused law firms.

This year, Client Choice recognizes 403 winners across 66 jurisdictions worldwide. Client Choice also recognizes winners at state and province level in the United States and Canada. This year, 187 winners across 32 US states and four Canadian provinces have been recognized.

The research begins with a readership survey of International Law Office (ILO) and Lexology in-house counsel subscribers. Clients are asked to rate individual lawyers and law firms on the following client service criteria: quality of legal advice, value for money, commercial awareness, effective communication, billing transparency, tailored fee structures, response time, sharing of expertise and use of technology.

To ensure that the results cannot be influenced, law firms are not informed when this initial round of research is conducted. The results of this survey are used to draw up shortlists for each work area. Shortlisted candidates are then invited to submit up to five referees. The research team conducts follow-up interviews and additional research where necessary. While based on thorough and coherent research, the results remain the subjective views of the Client Choice team.
