About the Awards

The Client Choice Awards for firms have been the most prestigious for professional services firms in Australia since 2005. In 2018 the very successful Awards for individual practitioners will continue, now in their fourth year. And, following the recent successes of Kiwi law and consulting engineering firms, both types of Awards will again include New Zealand. The Trans-Tasman rivalry has another dimension! 

The print and online editions of The Financial Review will carry news and stories about the Finalists, Winners and the Awards night and ceremony. Click here to find out more about our media partnership.


Thank you to all of our clients. We are very proud of our three Client Choice Award wins. Our people are at their best when working to deliver innovative solutions for our clients’ businesses and for their customers.

It is an honour to be consistently recognised in the Client Choice Awards, which we see as a positive endorsement of our client-centric approach. The detailed outcomes from beaton provide invaluable insights into our client’s priorities, and how we can continue to evolve our offering to be the firm with which our clients love to work.
