TAMPA, Fla. — Health law attorney Erin Smith Aebel, from the full-service business law firm Shumaker, Loop and Kendrick, LLP, was awarded a 2016 Lexology Client Choice award in London last week for exemplary client service.
Aebel was nominated by a client to receive the award, which is given annually to the best legal service providers around the world. She was the exclusive winner for the state of Florida in the Healthcare and Life Sciences category, and she is the only Shumaker attorney to have received the honor.
“All lawyers are expected to perform excellent legal services, but client service is what sets you apart,” Aebel said. “It’s a clear differentiator. I take client service very seriously.”
She and her fellow awardees were chosen from a pool of more than 2,000 attorneys. Aebel spoke with other winners and was presented with her award last week at a celebratory gala at the famed One Great George Street across from the Houses of Parliament.
“I had the wonderful opportunity to meet lawyers from around the world, so now when I have a client who needs a lawyer outside of the U.S., I can refer them to a firm that I know provides excellent customer service,” Aebel said.
