The Who’s Who Legal Awards have recognised Arthur Cox as the leading firm in Ireland.
The firm was named Ireland Law Firm of the Year 2012, the first time that it has gained this recognition.
Who’s Who Legal lists only the leading lawyers in each field, based exclusively on the findings of an independent six-month research process that encompasses feedback from private practitioners, clients and other experts in the sector. Only lawyers who score most highly according to its independent international research criteria are listed.
Partners from Arthur Cox in Ireland received sufficient nominations from their clients and peers to be listed 37 times across 20 practice areas in the publication. Lawyers from Arthur Cox were listed more times than those from any other law firm in Ireland.
Editor in chief Callum Campbell said, “The strong performance of so many lawyers from Arthur Cox underlines the depth of expertise the firm can offer across a range of areas, and we are delighted to recognise the firm as the leader in Ireland.”
The awards are based on a number of factors, including general feedback received in the research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in a firm’s favour.
The winners are formally announced in The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers 2012, a compendium edition of all the individual Who’s Who Legal publications, which is released in June and covers 31 practice areas and over 100 countries.
Who’s Who Legal is official research partner of the International Bar Association and strategic research partner of the ABA Section of International Law. In 2012, Who’s Who Legal’s parent company Law Business Research was recognised for the second time by The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the area of international trade.
