Corrs Chambers Westgarth is pleased to announce that 127 of its outstanding lawyers have been named in the 2017 Edition of Best Lawyers.

Best Lawyers Award Badge

Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same regions and practice areas for their abilities and their professionalism.

In addition to the Best Lawyers listing seven Corrs lawyers were also honoured as the "Lawyer of the Year.” Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is given this recognition, making this accolade particularly significant. These lawyers are selected based on impressive voting averages received during the peer-review assessments.

Additionally, Corrs was the recipient of Best Lawyer’s “Law Firm of the Year Award” in Information Technology. The firm was also acknowledged for its leading practices in “Top Listed Awards” for eight areas of practice.

Corrs partner and CEO John W.H. Denton AO congratulated the firm’s top lawyers and practices named in the 2017 Best Lawyers in Australia list: “This recognition is a testament to the quality of the Corrs partnership and our exceptional lawyers. The firm’s commitment to innovation and outstanding client service remains unwavering.”

Best Lawyers CEO Steven Naifeh said inclusion on the Best Lawyer list shows that a lawyer is respected by his or her peers for professional success. Lawyers on the Best Lawyers in Australia list are divided by geographic region and practice areas. They are reviewed by their peers on the basis of professional expertise, and undergo an authentication process.

Corrs congratulates the following teams and lawyers on their recognition:
