Mid-tier accountancy firm HLB Mann Judd has been named “Best NSW Firm” in the 2015 Financial Review (formerly BRW) Client Choice Awards.

The awards were presented on 10 March at a dinner in Sydney (Tuesday).

Established in 2005 and now in its twelfth year, The Financial Review Client Choice Awards recognise outstanding performances as voted by clients in the sectors of accounting, law, engineering and management consulting.

HLB Mann Judd was also named a finalist in the category of best accountancy firm (revenue between $50 million and $500 million). This is the fourth year in a row that HLB Mann Judd has been nominated in the “Best Accountancy Firm” category, with the firm winning the award in 2013 and 2014.

The Awards are based on quantitative research into buyers of professional services, conducted independently by Beaton Consulting. Winners are determined by the opinions of over 20,000 clients of professional services organisations who participated in the research.

Mr Tony Fittler, chair of the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association, said that the continual acknowledgement of HLB Mann Judd in the Client Choice awards and the successes of their firms throughout Australasia were a positive reflection of the ethos of the company.

“We strive to continuously provide a quality service to our clients, which is only possible through the constant support of our clients and our people,” Mr Fittler said.

“Our long standing ambition is to be the most highly regarded accounting and advisory firm in Australasia. We aim to maintain the high levels of service that our clients expect, to ensure that HLB Mann Judd remains top of mind for our clients when they are looking for great solutions,” Mr Fittler said.

HLB Mann Judd is an Australasian association of independent accounting firms and business and financial advisers, with member firms in Australia and New Zealand.
