We are delighted to announce that entries are now open for The Lawyer European Awards 2012.
This year’s awards include revised categories and criteria, although the entry process remains straightforward with the same requirements for firms across the board.
Winning firms will not necessarily be those which have topped deal tables. Last year’s awards went to a range of practices, from small corporate boutiques to some of Europe’s biggest firms. What they all had in common was a commitment to excellence across the board and a clear strategic vision.
A panel of judges, including managing partners at private practice firms and in-house counsel at multinational companies, will once again be judging the awards.
We encourage smaller firms from smaller markets to enter - winners are by no means based on the size of their firm. Every entry is scrutinised by the same criteria and it's quality not quantity, that win the top prizes.
The Lawyer European Conference
The awards will take place on the evening of our annual European summit, which this year will focus on management strategy for independent firms. Top-level panellists from both private practice and in-house will debate the key issues affecting independent firms in the current market environment. The summit will also be an opportunity to meet potential referral partners from across the continent.
The programme will be announced shortly.
Best of luck to all awards entrants.
