FB Rice has once again won at the Client Choice Awards 2021, in both the firm and practitioner award categories. This comes with great thanks to our clients for the recognition, Beaton Research & Consulting for conducting the independent research, and the team at FB Rice for being responsive, thoughtful and reliable – we make IP easy for our clients.

FB Rice awarded ‘Best Specialist IP & Related Services’ firm 2021

We are so pleased to receive the award titled Best Specialist IP & Related Services, as part of the Client Choice Awards 2021. Even in a global crisis the team at FB Rice has worked hard to stay true to our purpose of delivering the best service to our clients, and guide them as they navigate the complex world of intellectual property.

We were also thrilled to be named a finalist in the Best CX Firm award category.

“Our continual recognition at the Client Choice Awards highlights that it is our high level of service and focus on meeting our client’s expectations that continues to be our strength.” – Brett Lunn.

As the only client-voted professional services awards in the world, independently researched by Beaton, clients play a fundamental role in our nomination. Thank you to our clients for the continued recognition, and being a huge part of the interview process that has resulted in these awards and nominations.

This marks the fourth year we have won this award (previously named Best IP Specialist), and the fifth year in a row we have won at the Client Choice Awards. We were privileged to win the award “Niche Firm Leader” in 2017, before there was an IP specific category.

Brittany Howard awarded 'Best IP Specialist' 2021

Congratulations to Dr Brittany Howard who has been awarded Best IP Specialist as part of the Client Choice Awards practitioner category. Brittany Howard is an Associate in our Melbourne chemistry team. Clients value her holistic approach in managing their IP portfolios, and importantly, her ability to relay complex strategic advice with clear and concise communication; as evidenced by this fabulous recognition.

“I am beyond thrilled to be recognised by my clients for the service I provide. I am passionate about helping them bring their innovations to market".

Dr Brittany Howard.

We were pleased to see both Rachel Hooke, and Brittany Howard included as finalists in a category which had just four nominees. Rachel and Brittany exemplify our firm values of helping others to achieve through teamwork, positivity and being approachable, and it’s great for them to receive this client recognition.

This recognition follows previous individual award winners and nominees at FB Rice:

Once again, we thank our clients for contributing their time and effort to Beaton’s independent research, which has brought about this fantastic recognition.
