Lisa was presented with the prestigious award at a celebratory dinner on 6 February at One Great George Street in London.
The Irish award in the litigation category, chosen by Client Choice’s team of researchers, was given to Lisa for her ability to add real value to her clients’ businesses.

Unlike other awards, a lawyer can only be nominated for a Client Choice Award by a corporate or in-house counsel.
The award criteria focus on a nominee’s ability to give excellent advice beyond the other players in the market. This year's winners were chosen from over 2,000 nominees.
