It’s exciting to receive some good news in the midst of the current situation for all of us across the world. Despite the 2020 Gala Dinner for the Beaton Client Choice Awards being postponed due to the understandable health concerns around Coronavirus, this morning the winners were published on the Client Choice Awards website. A big congratulations to all the successful recipients and nominees. Here at FB Rice, we are so pleased to receive the award for ‘Best Specialist IP and Related Services Firm’. Additionally, partners Ian Rourke, and Connie Merlino were named finalists in the most ‘Client-Focussed IP Practitioner’ category.

“As always, the Awards are closely contested and justifiably recognise client-rated excellence in the professions. The fact that you are the winner in a field of other excellent finalists deserves to be widely celebrated with both your people and clients.”- George Beaton, Executive Chairman, Beaton Consulting

As the only client-voted professional services awards in the world, independently researched by Beaton, clients play a fundamental role in our nomination. A big thank you to all our clients for being a huge part of the interview process resulting in these nominations and awards. The print edition of the Australian Financial Review today also viewable here.

I am delighted to again see our wonderful team receive this accolade from our clients. I’d also like to thank Beaton, and their Principal Partner NAB, for their support of these awards which has done so much to recognise and improve the already world leading service delivered by the professions in Australia and New Zealand” - Brett Lunn, Managing Partner, FB Rice
