Excellence in Distribution: Noerr Partner Karl Rauser wins ILO Client Choice Award 2013
International Law Office (ILO) has selected Noerr partner Dr. Karl Rauser with the "Client Choice Award 2013" for his excellent performance in the franchising category for Germany. Already in October 2012, Germany's legal publisher JUVE selected Noerr winner in the "Law Firm of the Year for Distribution, Trade and Logistics" category at the prestigious JUVE Awards.
Since 2005, the ILO Client Choice Awards are given to lawyers who stand apart for the "excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service". The winners are identified exclusively on the basis of assessments handed in by corporate counsels, who assess individual lawyers in terms of quality, pricing, commercial and communication skills and speed of work. This year, more than 2,000 corporate counsels participated in the survey and selected 355 lawyers for their service excellence. Only one lawyer achieves the award for each country and each practice area.
Karl Rauser, who co-heads Noerr's Distribution Group, is praised by clients as "one of the best franchise lawyers in Germany" as well as "extreme reliable in every sense". Others add, he provides "brilliant legal knowledge, superb business understanding, and high-service quality". The award also acknowledges the added value Karl Rauser offers his clients, which is also clearly evidenced by one of the corporate counsel quotes in the jury's report: "He fully understands the real-life business needs of our company and makes sure that his legal advice is compatible with the practical business side".
"There is no better recommendation than that of a client and the award is therefore especially pleasing", said Karl Rauser, who is a member of Noerr's Commercial & Real Estate Department. The Munich based partner takes this award as an affirmation to move forward: "It is a sign of the value placed by our clients in cooperation with my team and myself and at once recognition and motivation".
Launched in 1998, ILO is a online resource providing information on legal services for internationally-operating corporate counsels, ranging from updates on global legal developments, a database of the world's major deals and the legal advisers involved to a comprehensive directory of firms and partners. Recognising its unique relationship with global corporate counsel, many of the world's premier associations have chosen to partner with ILO.
