Fox Tucker Managing Partner and Commercial Dispute Resolution team leader Mr Joseph DeRuvo said the national recognition was "an incredible honour".
"We're absolutely thrilled," he said. "You don’t even know when you’ve been nominated, so we owe a number of people out there a very big 'thank you'."
The prestigious gong, highly respected for being judged largely on independently researched peer and client feedback, adds to a growing list of achievements for the emerging mid-tier practice.
Earlier this year Fox Tucker was a finalist for Best Adelaide Law Firm in the ALB Australasian Law Awards, a finalist in the Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards, and six partners were recognised in Best Lawyers Australia.
DeRuvo, himself listed as one of Lawyers Weekly's Top 40 Lawyers for 2012, believed the litigation success reflected his team's "fearless" performance in some of the country's highest profile cases.
"We're obviously focused on achieving results for our clients, not winning awards for ourselves. But it's certainly nice to get a pat on the back now and then."
Fox Tucker Lawyers
Fox Tucker is a full-service commercial firm headquartered in Adelaide, with an additional office in Shanghai. Its nearly 80-strong team represents a wide range of local, national and international organisations. The firm was established in late 2010 when the lawyers who'd been practising as DLA Phillips Fox in Adelaide joined with those who'd been practising as Rankine Tucker Lawyers, also of Adelaide, to form an entirely new, independent entity.
