As just one of three finalists (and the only New Zealander), Matthew picked up the Most Client-Focused Lawyer award at the gala dinner held at the Sofitel Melbourne on Wednesday 14 March.
Matthew Ockleston comments: “Being named Most Client Focused Lawyer for 2018, is very satisfying. Our team strives everyday to deliver the best service possible to our clients and we are delighted that clients have recognised this. It is fantastic to be recognised by the people who matter most in our profession, our clients.”
“Winning this Client Choice Award is an outstanding achievement for Matthew and the Kensington Swan,” said CEO, Charles Spillane. “Matthew is a very humble and dedicated lawyer.

The people at Kensington Swan are committed to delivering unbeatable service for our clients. This ethos is at the heart of our strategy. It is great to see this focus being recognised by clients.”
The Financial Review Client Choice Awards are independently researched and judged by Beaton Research based on feedback from clients of the firms that enter the awards. Feedback from clients is that Matthew is “calm, and collected with very considered advice delivered in a timely manner.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our clients for their continued support of Matthew and our firm, and also congratulate all the other finalists and winners in the 2018 Financial Review Client Choice awards.
