Chapman Tripp Chief Executive Partner, Andrew Poole, won ‘Managing Partner of the Year’ at the 11th annual New Zealand Law Awards last night.
“It is a privilege to be recognised by my peers with this award. Awards like these are an important way of encouraging everyone in the profession to strive to achieve the best for our clients, and I’m very proud of what our firm has achieved this year.
"I’d also like to acknowledge the contribution of Wellington Partner, Mark Reese, with whom I shared the Managing Partner role for most of the last 10 years,” said Andrew Poole.
The award follows Chapman Tripp’s win of the ‘New Zealand Law Firm of the Year’ at the 2015 Chambers Asia Pacific Awards and ‘National Firm of the Year for New Zealand’ at the 2015 IFLR Asia Awards in Hong Kong earlier this year. Chapman Tripp also recently won Australasian Lawyer’s 2015 award for ‘New Zealand Employer of Choice’.
