HLB Mann Judd has taken out top honours in three categories at this year’s Client Choice Awards, including Best Professional Services Firm (revenue $50 – $200 million) and Best Accounting & Consulting Services Firm (revenue $50 – $200 million). Perth partner Litsa Christodulou was named joint winner for Best Accountant.

The Client Choice Awards recognise best practice in the professional services industry. They are based on client votes for professional services firms in Australia and New Zealand, which rate firms’ brands and performance in delivering services on a range of criteria. The client ratings are independently researched by Beaton Consulting + Research.

This is the seventh win as Best Accounting Firm for HLB Mann Judd, and the second time it has won Best Professional Services Firm which includes engineering, law and accounting firms in the category. Ms Christodulou was awarded Best Accountant for a third time.

Tony Fittler, chair of the HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association, said that the three awards are a tribute to the firm’s long-standing focus on client service.

“The recognition by our clients is the most important measure of success for us, and we are very honoured to have won three categories in this year’s awards.

“This is particularly meaningful to us following a year when responsiveness, communication and client service has been so important.

“Like every other firm, we have had to make significant changes to how we interact with clients and how we respond to their needs, and it is very rewarding to know that, despite the challenges of the past 12 months, we have succeeded in maintaining our own high standards of client service,” he said.

“On behalf of the Association, I also congratulate Litsa Christodulou, who won one of the few individual honours for the second year in a row, and third time in total.

“Litsa is a dedicated and experienced partner in Perth’s business advisory services division and has built extremely strong relationships with her clients, which is reflected in this accolade,” Mr Fittler said.
