Insurance Law Principal, Melanie Quixley, Awarded National Honour for Excellence in Client Service

Thursday, 14 October 2021

Leading Insurance & Health Law Principal, Melanie Quixley, has today been named the exclusive winner of the 2021 Client Choice Award in the Insurance category for Australia. This is the second time Melanie has received this award, having taken out the title in 2018.

The Client Choice Awards recognise solicitors and firms from around the world that stand apart for the level of client care they provide and the quality of their service. Criteria focuses on an ability to add real value to clients’ businesses above and beyond others in the market. Uniquely, firms and solicitors can only be nominated by corporate counsel.

This year the Client Choice Awards received over 2,500 nominations. Shortlisted candidates were invited to submit up to five client referees who were then asked to rate the candidates on a range client service criteria, including quality of advice, commercial awareness, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, responsiveness, and more. The strength of this feedback is what ultimately led to Melanie being named the exclusive winner for Insurance in Australia.

In addition to her Client Choice recognition, Melanie has been listed in Best Lawyers for Insurance Law, Personal Injury Litigation and Product Liability Litigation.
