Partner Andrew R. Evans has been named by Lexology as the 2024 Client Choice Award winner for Insurance and Reinsurance Expert Witnesses in the United States.
The Client Choice Award recognizes firms and individuals who stand apart for their excellent client care and the quality of their work. The criteria for recognition focus on an individual’s ability to add value to clients’ work. Clients rate individuals on the following service criteria, among other things: quality of advice, commercial awareness, industry knowledge, strategic thinking, value for money, responsiveness, effective communication, project management, loyalty, and ethics.
Nominees must be submitted by their corporate counsel clients and just one expert is recognized within a category/jurisdiction per year. This year, Mr. Evans—who is the former Chair of Bates White Economic Consulting’s Mass Torts Practice and leading expert on liability valuation, financial risk assessment, and insurance allocation—was one of only two winners to be named globally in the insurance and reinsurance experts category.
One client said that Mr. Evans “is understandable and personable.” Another praised Mr. Evans by saying, “his presence creates confidence.” A third added: “I liked the thoughtful and careful analysis and attention to detail that Drew presented well at depositions, arbitrations, and hearings.”
This is the third year that a Bates White expert has received this distinguished designation. Partners Nicholas Hill and George Rozanski received Client Choice Awards for competition economists in the United States in 2021 and 2020, respectively.
