DORDA scoops another two ILO Client Choice Awards

Thursday, 14 February 2019

Axel Anderl, Managing Partner and Head of the IT, IP and Data Protection Practice, and Bernhard Müller, Partner and Head of the Public & Regulatory Practice at DORDA were awarded the Client Choice Awards for IT & Internet as well as Public Law by  International Law Office (ILO), the British online legal information service, on February 7.

ILO's selection is based on a worldwide survey of more than 2,000 corporate lawyers. The Client Choice Awards were presented to a total of 369 lawyers from 67 countries at the gala ceremony in London beginning of February.

Axel Anderl has been recognised as undisputed leader of the IT & Internet sector for years and has now been awarded for the eighth time in a row. The market feedback gathered by ILO once again proves Anderl's leading position among IT and data protection experts in the Austrian market. In addition to his extraordinary legal skills, he impresses clients above all with his strategic skills and his relentless energy and commitment in handling even most complex projects. As in previous years, his clients regard him as frontrunner, always ahead of developments.

Axel comments on the new award: "This award is a big thank-you from my clients who took the time to provide feedback to ILO - therefore I am all the more pleased. Last year the GDPR craze was a huge challenge for my team. Even though we have had a well-positioned team at all seniority levels for years, the extremely high demand for GDPR implementation took us to capacity limits at times; same for our standard practice such as IT outsourcing projects and IP. My team, however, mastered the challenge well and kept a cool head maintaining highest standards in both, short reaction time as well as quality of work. This year's award confirms that we have managed the balance very well. Therefore, this year's recognition is very special to me. Accordingly, my team and I are highly motivated and well equipped to support our clients as usual with a top performance.”

Bernhard Müller was awarded the first time in the area of public law by ILO. According to client feedback, he has strong analytical and strategic skills. On the one hand, he convinces with his impressive knowledge, shaped by his academic career, and on the other hand with his extremely practical approach.

Bernhard, who is also a lecturer at the University of Vienna, advises clients in the Life Sciences industry with regard to complex public procurement proceedings, PPP-models, pricing and reimbursement and other regulatory issues in the healthcare sector. 

Bernhard Müller about his Client Choice Award: "I am really pleased about this award because it a direct honouring by our clients. For my team and I, it is a recognition of the quality of our advice. The pillars of my work are academic depth and precision combined with practical advice and the award is a confirmation that this approach is much appreciated".
The ILO Client Choice Awards are amongst the most prestigious international awards for lawyers. According to ILO the criteria for the awards focus on the ability to add real value to clients’ business above and beyond other players in the market.
