Fields Howell Partner Paul Fields Wins 2016 Client Choice Award

Atlanta, GA – On February 17, 2016, the International Law Office (ILO) and Lexology announced the winners of the 2016 Client Choice Awards. Fields Howell LLP is pleased to announce that founding partner, Paul L. Fields, Jr., has been selected as the exclusive winner of the Insurance category for Georgia.

Established in 2005, the Client Choice Awards identify top attorneys by surveying senior in-house counsel on the quality of client service they receive from law firms, rather than relying on peer nominations as many other professional awards do. Using attorney-client relationships to define success, the awards seek partners that excel in their roles and continuously offer outstanding client services. This year’s winners were selected from over 2,500 individual nominations.

Paul’s nomination reflects his twenty-eight years in practicing complex insurance coverage and litigation. Throughout his career, Paul has cultivated long-term relationships with clients and is devoted to the success of their businesses. His professional knowledge and ability to provide individualized attention to his clients have earned him the utmost respect from counsel members all around the world.
