Introducing the winners of this year’s awards to recognise legal providers that go above and beyond in the service of their clients. The importance of client service lay at the heart of our thinking when putting together the criteria for the Visionary External Providers of the Year. That, and the importance of reflecting the changing landscape of legal services, which is no longer the sole preserve of the legal partnership structure. General counsel have shared with the In-House Community that the three prevailing challenges they face on a day-to-day basis are: managing costs and evaluating value- added; talent and career management; and positioning the legal department within the company. By reverse-engineering these key challenges, we asked legal service providers – from anywhere on the new spectrum of legal services – to demonstrate that they can truly stand inside the shoes of their clients and provide them with inspiring service. So, rather than asking firms how much they pay their senior equity partners, we asked them to quantifiably demonstrate the following: budget-orientated project management for a client; advice to a client regarding productivity and efficiency; and exceeding client expectations (inclusive of client testimonials). The awards were judged by David Miles and Evangelos Apostolou. A seasoned legal professional, Apostolou was general counsel, Asia Pacific, and partner, Ernst & Young; and general counsel, Asia Pacific, British Telecom. He is currently president for EMEA at SirionLabs. Miles is a former partner, executive committee member and Asia chairman for Latham & Watkins. He is currently chairman of Asia Community Venture.   Visionary International Law Firm Winner: Eversheds The past year has marked a defining period...
