London-lawyers Mackrell Turner Garrett have been named Full Service Law Firm of the Year in the UK in the Corporate International Magazine 2011 Global Awards.

Mackrell Turner Garrett beat off competition from thousands of nominations in the independent awards.

From April through to June, Corporate International received more than 11,500 unique nominations from law firms, in-house Counsel Teams, Business Directors and Private Individuals from around the world.

Mackrell Turner Garrett was judged by a highly specialised and experienced team of researchers whose task was to take an independent look at the nominees and assess their service offering using Corporate International magazine’s “unique” methodology.

This information was combined with comments and ratings from clients and peers, as well as previously conducted research, before being presented to an expert panel of judges who chose the winners following two weeks of intense scrutiny.

Nigel Rowley, a partner at the firm, said the award was proof of the firm’s commitment to providing partner driven quality expertise where client care is the top priority.

He said: “We are delighted and proud to have been named the Full Service Law Firm of the Year in the UK by Corporate International.

“With a panel of expert judges, and a team of specialist researchers taking an independent look at our services, it is clear that we provide top quality expertise to our clients.

“It is particularly pleasing to know that the researchers’ information was added to by comments and ratings from clients.

“This proves to us that we are offering our clients the best services, professionalism and value

“However despite this award, we are committed to constant evolution and improvement so we remain one of the best in our field.”
